About the Book
"Privatsphären" (Private Spheres) is a full color, 120 page book that features 98 art works from 8 international artists as well as photos from their professional and personal lives. These art images include a special section of the 16 works that they exhibited in their October 2011 exhibition in Vienna, Austria at the Rearte Gallery. Information about and photos of the gallery are also provided by the gallery director and painter Abd Masoud.
Contributing Artists: Adrian Bayreuther (Germany), Alberto D’Assumpção (Portugal), Olga Dmytrenko (USA/Ukraine), Frank Ettenberg (Austria/USA), Harriette Lawler (USA), Abd Masoud (Austria/Jordan), Izabella Pavlushko (Azerbaijan), and Constantin Severin (Romania).
Originally created to serve as the exhibition catalogue for the Vienna exhibition, the book grew to become much more: a vivid journey through the art and lives of the eight artists featured. Book design and cover design by Harriette Lawler. Cover photo by Frank Ettenberg. Each artist proofread and edited their own pages.
