VIC Art Club shows works of Austrian artist Ingrid J. Kurnig

An impressive exhibition of collage-graphics, lithographs, and oil-paintings by Klagenfurt-born artist Ingrid J. Kurnig opened last Tuesday at the UN. ... Kurnig, who began her artistic career as a photographer, studied painting, etching, lithography and print-making in Salzburg, Vienna, and the USA, under such distinguished artists as Giselbert Hoke and Kunito Nagaoka.

In oil-paintings like The Sea is Black Kurnig is almost Van-Gogh-esque in her vigorous use of colour and brush stroke. ...
