ISABELLA STEINDL, born 1981 in Freienstein as daughter of a Cypriot and a UN soldier, lives and works in Graz, Austria. Her paintings are in private collections in Europe, especially in Austria and Germany.
Isabella Steindl’s autobiographical, self-reflexive approach to art concentrates on figurative details that leave much room for interpretation. The border between abstraction and reality becomes blurred – the free spaces thus created open up new perspectives and, among other things, offer an interpretative approach to the perception of gender relations: Women sometimes become men, or vice versa, or even eerie-looking hermaphrodites always form a flowing unity despite everything.
Isabella Steindl’s art is characterized by a complex linearity that creates its own dynamic in the flow of movement. ~ StI Freienstein

The Naked Meeting 2019, acrylic on canvas, 90x120cm
Actually the whole world should be declared a “Clothing optional” area. Then all people could run around everywhere as they like. For the few “Prüdisten”, who feel insulted by naked people, one could form separate “Prüdisten Camps”, in which clothes obligation exists.
