Impressions of Tokyo greet us as we enter the elegant spaces of Galerie Krinzinger in Vienna. A stipendium brought artist Erik Schmidt to Japan for several months in 2015 and his current exhibition Cut/Uncut developed from his time there. The resulting series of oil paintings capture Tokyo’s architecture and the people who inhabit it. Using vibrant cross-hatched brush strokes, Erik captures the hustle and bustle of the city. The video that accompanies the exhibition shows the entanglement of intense modernization and anachronistic tradition that marks contemporary life in Japan.

Born in Herford, Erik lives and works in Berlin. He studied at the HAW in Hamburg and “Freie Klasse” of UDK/HDK. Since then, he has had exhibited his work in international venues.
Although painting forms the core of his practice, Erik also works in different media like drawing and video. His newspaper drawings developed from an earlier series in which he worked with painting on glossy magazines. The newspapers show a different relationship with materials, altering newspaper colors with thick oil crayon marks.

Experiences that unfold in the artist’s immediate vicinity provide the impulse for many of his works. It’s not surprising, then, that many of his works are made while traveling or about specific communities. Erik tends to work in series and has made works about the culture surrounding hunting and the Occupy movement in New York City, in addition to his recent series made at a residency in Japan. As an outsider to these contexts, he brings the distinct vision of an artist.
