Oberbauer, Manfred


Since 25 years I am doing watercolors where ever I am moving about.They are a kind of documentarian stories of the environment which I experience. The daily life I am interested in. Sure I am also showing the big attractions because they show the culture and describes a nation and people. But also then I put it in a daily life context to shut out romantic feelings. Lamposts, garbage pins, traffic signs, ventilasjon, cars, building sites, …the whole infrastructure is included.

My works have documental karakter, but are naturally subjective. I choose my motives to express a certain zeitgeist and environment.
In my works I am also interested in topography ( environmental situation, communication…), history and the political and social background.
Generally do I try to show « the feeling of a place».

Exhibition in my studio “A dokument of Oslos changes the last 10 years”
for eksampel have I dokumentated Bjørvikas different phases from wasteland and
traffikjungle to opera, Barkode, Munchmuseeum and Daichmanske Libriary.
Or the facelift of Akerselva, the construcing of new flats in Hasle, Løren, Ensjø and
I closely follow those construction projects and also document temporary
adaptations that occur while the building processes are in progress.
