«Con la situación actual,
estudiar Bellas Artes es de ser muy valiente»
1980, Mexico City – Lives and works in Vienna and Berlin
Enrique Fuentes was born in Mexico. Sometimes the effect of his paintings is explained from this circumstance. It is claimed that the enigmatic, contradictory even disturbing comes from the fact that his art is virtually an impulsive mixture of his hot-blooded temperament and all the impressions and influences with which he has been confronted since he entered the’ Ecole Nationale Supérieur des Beaux-Arts in Paris – and later in Austria, where he lives predominantly. Enrique Fuentes is driven by a powerful passion, by a tremendous urge to do exactly what he does. There is, beyond his infectious kindness, a dark side to him, a knowledge of death, disease, despair, decay. He has something of a shaman, that is, of a person who is able to look at the other side. That above all determines his art, that above all establishes the peculiarity of his works.
— (Otto Hans Ressler “Enrique Fuentes – The dark Side” Atlas Obscuro, 2018)–

Zoran Antonio Music
Görz 1909 - 2005 Venice, I
Zoran Music was already an established Slovenian painter when he was deported to the Dachau concentration camp for several months at the end of 1944. Drawings made there became harrowing documents of the times. In the post-war period, the painter settled in Venice, where he painted iconic portraits of his wife Ida Barbarigo, as well as the first unmistakable Cavallini from Dalmatia. Meanwhile, Music traced the whimsical signature of earth relief in the hilly worlds of Umbria and Tuscany.
When the Galerie de France signed him up in 1952, he moved to Paris, where he lived for long periods. Since 1948 he participated several times in the Venice Biennale, was represented with his works at the documenta I in Kassel as early as 1955, and was exhibited and awarded numerous times internationally.
In the mid-1950s, Music defined the landscape, including the pictorial protagonists, as an ornamental fabric, as it were, in his color-intensive works, soon venturing a step into abstraction. This phase, which lasted until 1963, was followed by a body of work in which Music increasingly found his way to an anthropomorphic conception of the landscape.
The indelible trauma of the concentration camp experience was again processed by the painter from 1970 in the cycle of paintings “Wir sind nicht die Letzten” (“We are not the last”). These unsparing visions of horror were followed by atmospheric paintings from Music’s adopted Venetian home as well as numerous self-portraits painted in muted tones. These are evidence of a tireless search for answers to the fundamental questions of human existence.

Art: It seduces, criticizes and is unique as well as sustainable. It offers me freedom. Freedom to interpret in different ways. That makes it powerful. Because it holds potentials for visions and fills not only walls and rooms, but my thoughts. Art is life and lets me dive into other worlds. Turned towards art, I met Marion many years ago. Since then, my view has widened to observe even more intensively. I myself cannot imagine a life without art. Marion understands how to facilitate the viewer’s access to art, to feel it with the senses and the heart, and thus also to approach the messages of the artist. Thus, there were works of art that I absolutely had to acquire to have them around me. Marion finds solutions and makes this possible. The pictures inspire me.
For me, the art moments gallery is a source of peace and inspiration. The exhibitions stimulate my imagination and help me develop new ideas for my work. In addition, Ms. Fischer not only supports me in finding new ways of looking at things, but also regularly introduces me to other investors and business partners through her network. Of course, I also like to buy art to beautify my home or to expand my collection.
