“Wolfgang Abfalters paintings are representational always. Often, he starts with real persons or situations which he then transforms into generally relevant statements by adding a pinch of symbolism. He expresses emotions and atmospheres with strong colours and keen compositions. Numerous paintings appear to be snapshots, show image sections quasi and pretend to be collages. Many a thing remains sketchy and thus gives room for interpretation.” Mag. Sabine Fürnkranz | Kunst-Service Wien
