Walter Pichler

Walter Pichler. Zeichnungen: Für meine Mutter/ Disegni: per mia madre

Walter Pichler comes from a South Tyrolean family, and during the years of fascism that meant that his parents also had to decide where they wanted to live in the future, following the relevant agreements between Hitler’s Germany and Mussolini’s Italy: His father chose North Tyrol, although his wife did not want to leave her homeland.
Walter Pichler has dedicated an extraordinary cycle of coloured drawings to the story of his mother, who raised three daughters and six sons, often under very arduous conditions, which were then exhibited in the iron spire of Castle Tyrol. It is the testimony of a passed life of strong inner drama. At the same time, however, it is also an example of the work of this artist who, with the help of his very personal language, drawing, also knows how to work out what is valid for many from his mother’s experiences: „Drawing can do almost everything, it is so strange and yet so exact. If you make a drawing and it is free of intentions, then you move away and at the same time become more and more accurate.“
