On Painting is a talk series initiated by the abstract painting studio in 2013. Students, alumni, faculty and guests meet to discuss contemporary painting exclusively through the means of original works.

The expanded concept for the new series of On Painting will be held over four events commencing in the 2022 summer semester. Artists will be invited to bring in their own painting, which will be exhibited in the Exhibit Eschenbachgasse space alongside a reference object and a copy of a historical painting.

With associatively charged meshes and an unusual perspective representation in her current painting, Sophia Mairer cautiously approaches imagined places and makes it an attempt to subvert traditional visual habits and the thought processes associated with them.
