Artist Hartmut Austen

Here R More (Good Weather, 2016) is a book that showcases the work of visual artist Hartmut Austen, an assistant professor in the Art, Art History, and Film Department. The book collaborators are Haynes Riley (design) and Ruben Nusz (text). Austen, who was born in Germany, is an abstract painter who has been influenced by German Neo-Expressionism and American minimalism and conceptual art. Austen said the book was a way to bring his art out into the world, beyond the walls of a gallery where this work was first displayed in an exhibition of the same name. He talks about the book with the BC Libraries.
