Rosa Loy and husband Neo Rauch - the artist couple with the best names - will be exhibiting 80 of their works in a self-curated double show entitled Hinter den Gärten (Behind the Gardens) at Essl Museum from September 1st onwards.
I think this - their very first show together - is a fantastic opportunity to see how this very prolific artist couple has influenced and inspired one another, getting ever closer, yet how they have retained their own styles and artistic techniques - with Neo working mainly in oil and Rosa focussing on casein.
I have featured Neo a couple of times in the past so I decided to post two works by Rosa here - one that's going to be exhibited at Hinter den Gärten (Dampf, bottom) and a small-format one that's very dear to me but has sadly been stolen in Leipzig on March 4 this year (Grimoire, top).
