Michael Endlicher lives and works in Vienna.

2 pm, January 5, 1960: Endlicher is born in Vienna. After completing his degree in Business Administration he works as a writer and project manager in
Austria and Germany. At the same time he experiments with colours and lacquer, plastic foil, collage techniques and lettering, putting up paper objects and
plastic paintings. During the 90ies his career as an artist starts with a homage to the legendary Amber Room. In succession, based on his material research,
he develops conceptual artworks focusing on language. Public actions and exhibitions follow with the Austrian Institute for art in public spaces museum in progress,
Lukas Feichtner Gallery and Technisches Museum Wien as well as participations in international art fairs with his Viennese Gallery Peithner-Lichtenfels. Endlicher's works
are part of private respectively institutional art collections.

Endlicher explores the linguistic and visual terms in the creation of meaning. Beginning with the term ‘linguistic turn’ – instead of being understood as a precondition and
constant, reality is viewed as a construct of language – lettering becomes the primary material of visualization, language is the conceptual constant. Linguistic panel paintings and
videos (Kritikbilder/Critical Paintings and the Herr Meneutik video), contemporary devotional paintings (Votivbilder/Votive Paintings), cabbalistic number plates (Dramenbleche/Metal Dramas),
confessional mirror objects (Moralspiegel/Moral Mirrors), subversive enamel plates (inverted icons) and spatial distorsions of litanies (plurifakta): Text appears in the form of
art-critical quotes and as four-letter words, it is juxtaposed with numeric letter-values, used as a formulaic vow and as a letter case for pictures. Words are extending into the
room displaying an artifical language. Text is painted, stencilled, impressed, etched, digitally designed and folded, in the process investing each word, each individual letter
with its own wilful personality.
