Franz Bodner

I create objects which nobody really needs.Still I keep on creating them paintings and sculptures.I do not want to provoke. Through my work, I want to expand people's awareness.My creations are and must be food for the soul.Their expressive faculty brings humanity, the animal world and nature to the forefront. To me, the human being is a blessed creature. I paint and form humans. I live and experience.My work should radiate passion, a mysterious force and the source of my expressions.Art should be lived and felt, not rationalized and explained.Colors and shapes should express what we have lost in our gray daily existence. Often I feel lonely and abandoned, tapping my paintbrush on an empty canvas without response. I wish to bring a message, show humanity the way. A difficult assignment in a hectic world.I experience peaks and lows, I create artwork for humanity.I am driven by an inner force and do not wish to show off. The sometimes-erotic aura of my images should help people, create a bond between them and their equals. Art should contribute to lift the loneliness and isolation in which many people live.Recurrent themes in my pictures are the circle and the sun, symbols of unity and power, closed within themselves but in harmony. The circle is not a symbol of stagnation, but of unity the desire to live together.My paintings should not be researched and interpreted.In my new period of naïve, surrealism I allow nature, animal and human being to enjoy their well-deserved peace by symbolic closed eyes.The inner force put me to it, maybe it is a sign of fear in this time of wastage.My paintings are a bridge between existence and non-existence. On the fault plane between play and reality, arise paintings and sculptures, which stand midway between fiction and facts.Almost imperceptible borders are crossed. Myself, the artist, signalize the facts and leave the interpretation to the spectator. One should also be able to remain silence and leave things the way it is unique in it's own harmony.
