About Artist

Rene Bachrach Kristofic

I was born in Zagreb. Live and work in Zagreb and Wiena. All of my work derives from my personal experience of being diagnosed with a terminal disease. The main theme of all of my work is - the end. End representing death, end of a period in life, childhood's end, end of the world. During my treatment, from something abstract, the end has become something very real to me, and it started to intrigue me. My work consists of painting cycles that always contain elements from my life. The cycles often appear as scenes from a comic book, or I use comic books as a source of inspiration. I'm also inspired by other media, such as movies or music and books. In particular, I'm intrigued by classical SF literature (Stanislaw Lem, Isaac Asimov, Philip K. Dick, Arthur C. Clark) and punk-rock culture of the 80's (works of Robert Longo). I also use comic strip and film framing and make use of the multiplicity of options to set my canvases within an exhibition area so that it allows various possibilities of interpreting a story. In addition, the possibility to place the canvases like triptychs with all possible combinations brings about a process where ''new'' paintings continue to appear within a composition, which allows the observer to find himself a story center of his own. Education: 2003. graduated from the School of applied Arts and Design in Zagreb 2009. graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb

Descending

                         Painting: Oil and Ink on Canvas.

Inviting the viewer into a less familiar environment, the simple compositions allow the paint to speak. The work explores a diverse approach to oil painting: borrowing traditions and exploring processes in order to investigate different ways of controlling and engaging with the viewer. The tension between the silent, geometric structures and the rhythm of nature create a disquieting unease that can allude to the Uncanny. This body of work is a direct development from the Borderline Project, exploring the relationships between architecture, design and the tradition of oil painting

The Queensferry Crossing, a bridge to the future
The spectacular Queensferry Crossing over The Forth near Edinburgh is an experience not to be missed and the sight has inspired me to paint its 'portrait' and publish prints and cards, see: harleymiller.com/queensferrycrossing.html

I Scream for Ice Cream

Painting: Oil and Acrylic on Canvas.

Inspired by my other larger-than-life food series and a hot hot day, this ice cream reminds one of the refreshment of a cold treat on a warm day and the sticky mess that goes along with it
