The catalog for the exhibition at the Albertina provides an overview of Jakob Gasteiger's oeuvre: from the mid-1980s, when the works were primarily created in black or with other solid colors, to the two-part works in which a flat, unstructured second half of the painting appears next to the high-contrast surface texture of one half of the painting in relief, to the new two-color work that heralds an increasing complexity in Gasteiger's oeuvre. To the superficial eye, his painting is determined by an unmistakable shaping of the color mass by means of a self-fabricated color comb, so that above the immediate recognizability of his combed paintings, the successive development of his art is easily overlooked. This is astonishing in an artist who understands the analysis of painting as a radical act and the basis of his art.
