About his artwork

 

Mayerhofers artworks deal with various parallel universes and individual realities. Born out of cryptic associations they carry the viewers into emotional situations, in which logical laws don’t seem to exist.

That’s why somebody may call his art surreal even though it’s conceptual.

At second view you can realize that all his imaginations have a main target: to break through our all-day ways of sight and feelings and to reflect it. The artwork as a dialectical process.

 

Mayerhofer works in several series, which are produced parallel over the years. Some of them are nearly realistic. Others are extremely reduced. He likes to play with different art-styles.

In spite of it his good style-feeling and perfection give autonomy to his opus and make it outstanding and easy to recognize.
