Art knows no borders, no barriers, no religions, and no age or sex limitation. Art is there to build bridges that connect nations and melt the cultural diversity into one pot to create a universal language – the language of art. This is the main mission of the REARTE Gallery, a private non-commercial, nationally and internationally recognized art space in Vienna. It provides opportunities for artists from different countries to connect with each other, exhibit their art in an exclusive and representative atmosphere, and to allow art lovers to discuss and share their ideas and thoughts away from the commercial atmosphere. “Privatsphären” is a celebration of the friendship between eight visual abstract artists from different countries and continents, which became possible due to the revolutionary development of the internet and social networking technologies in the last decade. Artists are no longer confined in their studios and may communicate in the virtual space with distant colleagues, sharing their private thoughts, art ideas, works and inspirations. This exhibition offers to Vienna audiences a visual tour of a carefully selected and unique collection of 14 oil and acrylic paintings and wall sculptures created by international artists united by their sincere belief in the power of friendship and good will.

REARTE Gallery presents:
Adrian Bayreuther (Germany) has a deep passion for the Russian avant-garde. With influences ranging from Malevich to Exter, Adrian creates stunning visual voyages that combine the Russian and German cultures.
Alberto D’Assumpção has won acclaim in his country, Portugal, and internationally for his skill and ability to create rhythm and metaphysical imagery by imparting a dramatic sense of color, dynamics, and emotions into the static character of geometric elements.
Born in Ukraine and living in the USA, Olga Dmytrenko uses her emotional states of mind and imagination, boosted by her scientific background and life experience, to create original and sensual fantasy landscapes and mindscapes, often with a hint of sci-fi flavor.
Frank Ettenberg, the USA artist currently living in Austria, discovered and fell in love with the NY School of Abstract-Expressionism in the 60s, at the beginning of it. Since then, he enjoys doing emotionally charged, full of feelings and drama, visual abstractions created with his unique brush strokes, bold and soft colors, dynamics and 3D effects.
Strongly influenced by her Native American heritage, Harriette Lawler’s art relates to the changing mental, spiritual, and emotional landscapes that we traverse in life. Her metal pieces represent difficult transitions or passages. In contrast, her mixed-media Arcs reflect harmony and tranquility.
The Jordanian artist Abd Masoud receives inspiration from his cultural heritage: desert, Arabic poetry, symbolism, traditional proverbs and calligraphy. His works show the prosperity of various cultures, influenced by contemporary design aroused to a unique form of life.
Izabella Pavlushko (Azerbaijan) is a virtuoso in geometrical abstraction and an avid follower of the Russian avant-garde. Her paintings offer a metaphorical significance via incredible color and shape compositions, leading a spectator to the discovery of complex information though simplicity.
In his vibrant colored, geometrical, abstract foregrounds/backgrounds, Romanian artist-writer-theorist, Constantin Severin, incorporates the elements of classical realism in the small iconic images with perfectly recognizable genre scenes that quote masters of realistic painting – Jan Vermeer, Diego Velazquez and others.

The book accompanying the exhibition “Privatsphären” (Private Spheres), published by Chao Fia Contemporary, 2011, is a full color, 120 page book that features 98 art works from 8 international artists as well as photos from their professional and personal lives. These art images include a special section with the collection to be exhibited and a page devoted to the Privatsphären Speaker, Elisabeth Ledersberger-Lehoczky. Information about the gallery is also provided by the gallery director and painter Abd Masoud. ISBN 978-0-9838381-0-4.
A digital preview (42 pages) is made available at: www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/2360967
