HONG ZEISS

Structures in Color

One can only be amazed when the secret about what Hong paints is discovered: stones. Influenced by Kantian aesthetics, his paintings explore the sensual effects of nature captured through abstraction. Zeiss’ paintings consist of a series of amorphous, often strongly rhythmic color surfaces that seem to lead a compositional life of their own. There is a lot happening on the canvases: mass and structure.

Originally from Taipei, Hong Zeiss is a conceptual painter living in Vienna. He studied philosophy in Salzburg and classical figurative sculpture at the University of Applied Arts, as well as textual sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, with Heimo Zobernig. Zeiss was assistant to Sabeth Buchmann. He also collaborated on various projects with the Viennese painter Otto Zitko.

The collection of his big paintings can be found in several areas at Almanac Palais Vienna, such as the Vienna Art Suite, were is located this blue “OT (Onyx)” alongside other paintings from local artist, creating once own exhibition suite.
