Hidden Treasures by Martin C. Herbst

Martin C. Herbst is an Austrian artist that streches the conventional painting. He was born in 1965 and he has studied in Mozarteum University Salzburg. He has several group and solo exhibitions throughout two continents. More specifically he has exhibited his work in New York, Miami, Toronto, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Budapest, Vienna, Basel and Düsseldorf.

The Hidden Treasures is a series of sculptures where mirrors reflect actual paintings. “These reflected paintings are a unique contribution to the centuries-old art-historical and philosophical theory of painting as a mirror of the world. In the hidden treasure series, painting and mirror are amalgamated, transforming tangible paint into an ephemeral and virtual manifestation” Herbst epxlains. Enjoy.
