“Surprisingly, Mosbacher’s art is always personal, radically individualistic, even anarchist, illimitably random, totally sovereign and manically ‘self-centered,’ yet at the same time almost ‘neutral,’ almost indifferent, almost physically objective. At the same time, he is able to foreground the subject matter as something irrational, inexplicable, unpredictable, thereby giving absolution to its meaning while still putting the narrative into perspective – the ‘story’ that draws a direct connection between a picture and the artist’s life – by going so far as to destroy ‘painterly’ manipulations par excellence. It is in this apparent ambivalence, this hidden irrationality that one finds some of the most important and striking aspects of Alois Mosbacher’s art.”
