Heidemaria Abfalterer’s works of collage confront the viewer with bold statements reflecting the impressions of the artist. Having worked as a newspaper archivist for her first job, Abfalterer found inspiration in the images discarded with impunity on a daily basis—she began collecting and arranging them, creating her own signature pieces. Beginning with an aesthetic approach, Abfalterer’s process starts with the newsprint images on top of which she layers paint and critical statements.

Abfalterer blends cutting humor and visual potency to reflect on pressing current themes. Helps Herself describes climate change and human beings’ vain attempts against the power of nature. The pink acrylic undertone shows an embellished view of reality through rose-tinted glasses, offering an optimistic glimpse into the future. Speed Art is a collage grid of vintage magazine clippings portraying women, paintings, animals, and comic book characters. The work reflects on multiple variations of the same topic while denouncing the dizzying pace of the art market.

Abfalterer demonstrates a clear commitment to freedom of speech and the press as well as a dedication to a simpler existence before the technological advancements of the last couple of decades.

Abfalterer lives and works near Innsbruck, Austria.
