Christian Stock

Besides his artistic activities on the borderline between painting and object, the Austrian artist Christian Stock is also engaged in curating exhibitions. The concept and the effort to subject certain traditional habits to new exploration are important in his works. This is shown, for instance, in his Cube Paintings, when he gradually forms layers of paint on a base so that finally all the layers underneath are easily visible. These show, similarly as when examining works of old masters using x-ray, the process of creation and become part of the work itself.
