Alicia Viebrock (b. 1986, Munich, Germany) studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf under Professor Herbert Brandl and lives and works in Vienna, Austria. 


In Viebrock’s work exuberant colour formations meet reduced compositional constructs with calligraphic elements. Colour power and dominance meet purposefully placed painterly gestures. Fleeting structures interlock through the viscosity of the paint, condition each other as flowing colour fields or assert themselves in self-confident demarcation. The sensuality of the paintings is reflected in their immediacy. The display of poured, dripped and splattered paint are indications of the expressive range of the artist, adopting a highly physical and psychological relationship with the surface. While strong colour fields on the canvas evoke a deliberate imbalance, the gestural settings on linen find a more determined hold, which is broken by gentle painterly expressions. The latter provokes a delicate flickering in the pictorial space.
