Joseph Heer

(b. 1954)

The work of the artist Joseph Heer, who lives in Vienna and Mallorca, has been on a journey of research and discovery since the mid-1980s. The focus of Heer’s oeuvre is on something fundamental, authentic and truthful. The question is how one can continually attempt to create something new on the basis of a never-changing foundation.

There is, as it happens with all great artists, something peculiar and different in Joseph Heer’s painting. It is not only his poetic and sensorial treatment of the suggestive materiality of white, but, mainly, his vision of the mysterious deepness of painted thoughts. It invites us to enter mental landscapes.


Mainly White

“Mainly White” represents three exceptional series of Heer`s paintings: “Temps”, “Perspectiva Prozessualis” and “Soft Bay”. They demonstrate that Joseph Heer’s paintings constitute a categorical and meaningful contribution to international abstraction.
