“Ideas are just starting points. To know what you want to draw, you have to start drawing.” (Pablo Picasso)

The gallery gugging celebrates three drawers with Basel Al-Bazzaz, Helmut Hladisch & Jürgen Tauscher, who implement their drawing talent in completely different ways, and so in the exhibition “Noah’s Ark” – three worlds open up that are as unique and wonderful as their creators themselves. The title of the exhibition is borrowed from the work of the same name by Jürgen Tauscher.

Basel Al-Bazzaz, Helmut Hladisch and Jürgen Tauscher are united by their talent and love of drawing. By using pencils on paper and canvases they give their ideas the form that corresponds to their need for expression. Fascinated by the surrounding nature, but also objects of daily life as well as flying objects, many motifs can be found, which are interpreted individually. The presentation of exceptional drawers such as Johann Hauser, Oswald Tschirtner and August Walla has a long tradition with us, and we are very pleased to be able to continue this tradition with this exhibition. As different as the depicted worlds are, the three artists are united by the fact that they work every day and that their works have an inherent humor that brings a smile to the viewer’s lips. Especially in times like these, humor and that you surround yourself with art that brings joy and fascinates you are something very important.
