Large Scale Picture


The Austrian painter Herbert Brandl, himself a master of extreme picture sizes and an enthusiastic experimenter, has chosen a subject for the radical format of the large-scale picture producer Trevision which is both unruly and fascinating at the same time: a colossal mountain – the respectable Annapurna in the Himalayas – rises from the lowland plain. The doubly reflected original image multiplies itself into a mountain range which ploughs through the gentle green sea of crops and obstructs the view of the landscape. (Brigitte Huck)
