Rudi Stanzel is an artist who lives and works in Vienna. He produces concrete, largely monochrome non-figurative paintings and objects often structured around loosely defined geometric patterns, including grids and stripes, and modular arrangements. Stanzel regards his work as resistant to precise conceptual interpretation. He also eschews conventional painterly concerns with part-by-part composition and spatial illusion, placing emphasis instead on the materiality of surface. Stanzel has taken up positions as an artist in residence in the People’s Republic of China on two occasions: first at the Ningbo Museum of Art from September to December 2006, and subsequently at the Organhouse in Chongqing from September to December 2013.1 In this conversation he discusses the development of his practice as an artist and the impact on that development of local materials appropriated during his residences in China.
