Harald Kastlunger's studio, full of imagination
Welcome to my Studio in Brixen, Italy
Whoever visits Kastlunger in his studio in Fallmerayerstraße 3 in Brixen recognises immediately that a philosopher or at least a philosopher of life is at work: Here he feels like a contented recluse. It was abstraction that steered him into this situation.
For a long period of time Kastlunger experimented, tinkered with, and perfected his work in the periphery of fantastic realism. His search for perfection became a fervour, which drove him forward, further strengthened him from time to time, continually motivated and which still holds him captive today. And the search goes on, for even perfection is not perfect. The goal - if indeed there is such a thing for Kastlunger! - is: total simplification.
That is his motto: Less is more. Precisely that corresponds to Kastlunger's philosophy of life. How he perceives life and how he lives is enunciated in his work, in the search for a serene balance between soul and intellect.
