9783829604451: States of Mind: Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Drawing

The American artist Cy Twombly is regarded as one

of the most influential artists of the 20th century.

Starting off from abstract expressionism, he developed

his own original style using writing-like signs

which he exaggerated in size into monumental,

large-format canvases. The presentation at the

MUMOKthe first in Austriabrings together works

from all periods of his oeuvre and presents a new

cycle of works specially created for the show.

Twombly's pictures and sculptures evoke the ancient

myths of the Mediterranean world though it is the

incidental and underlying that is the focal point.

The alternation between sensitivity and vulgarity,

filigree technique and expressivity constitute the

enormous tension in the works. The exhibition,

presented as a retrospective, brings together genres

that, up until now, have generally been shown separately

sculpture, painting, drawing, graphic works,

and photographs.
