New Order (Hole Hilfe! und Es dreht sich um dich!), 2008
Alois Mosbacher


For the painter Alois Mosbacher, the forest is like a cinematic ‘crime scene’. With quick charcoal strokes on monochrome, artificial and cold-looking colour surfaces in oil, he sketches ominously charged scenarios of a man-made and seemingly lost environment. Immediately reminiscent of a film set, they are produced from Mosbacher’s media archive with pencil and brush. Littered with the waste of civilisation, mysterious and full of clues to stories that might have taken place in the dark of the woods, the ‘New Orders’ point to impending or current misfortune.
