Essence, the title of the Várfok Gallery’s fourth solo exhibition of Austrian painter Martin C. Herbst, is meaningful in many ways. First, it refers not only to the nature, character and substance of Herbst’s art but, also, reveals its core and nucleus. ‘Essence’ brings together works of striking diversity in representation and form, highlighting the special character and nature of Herbst’s art as an overlap between painting and sculpture. Moreover, the exhibition reveals Herbst’s strong ties to art history and the masterpieces of the Renaissance. In particular it shows the core and nucleus of the artist´s idea of Man in its ideal form and idealistic representation as in C16 Florence and Rome.
Martin C. Herbst (1965, Salzburg, Austria), joined the Várfok Gallery’s artists’ circle in 2007 and is represented in many parts of the world with solo exhibitions opening one after the other in Miami, Toronto, New York, Paris and Düsseldorf. His work has been exhibited in some of the most prestigious Art Fairs throughout the world such as The Armory Show New York, Art Basel Miami, Scope Basel / Miami / New York, Art Miami, Contemporary Istanbul and is held in prestigious private collections and museums, hanging alongside the works of such artists, as Ai Wei Wei, Anish Kapoor and Christo.
