My Favorite Artworks in Kunsthaus, Graz, Austria My second favorite was a 30 minutes video, titled True False Else, white outlines of ever-morphing objects continuously expanded and contracted against a dark background, reminiscent of the famous William Kentridge’s drawing animation. Mesmerizing.

My Favorite Artworks in Kunsthaus, Graz, Austria That said, I did see some very interesting works in this museum during my 2012 visit to Graz. My favorite item was an installation - a wooden forest flourishing under several intense circular florescent lights, suggesting a giant incubator, or an solemn, almost spiritual outer space, where several stars or planets converging upon alien soil. Very intriguing.

As usual, my focus in an art museum would be on paintings and here the vast painting collections, dating back to early 15th century, really shone. The range of these works were so broad, here, I choose to present them in general chronological order.
20th-21st Century - many impressive modern paintings and installations and my favorites included works by Karl Zerbe, Hans Hofmann, Franz Kline and Anselm Kiefer.
