"I don`t think about art while I work - I try to think about life"
Martin Sonnleitner combines photographic space and abstract expressionism. His work is provocative and confrontational, but also objective and critical of his source imagery.
Sonnleitner comments on media imagery, reproduction, and the body as a modern spectacle. Figures in the work are seductive, yet disassembled by the very marks that create them. In this sense Sonnleitner’s work is a type of contemporary pop art.
"I don`t think about art while I work. I try to think about life. I`m trying to recreate artificial influences as a mix of different styles and technic ending up in the nowtime of my own contemporary art. That`s the only way to reinvent my viewing point of art and myself as an artist. These scenes are my social commentary of modern art life."
