The exhibition opening with paintings of Gabriela Biechl was a great success. The unveiling of the illusion painting – the „Trompe l’oeil“ – was acknowledged with big applause.
Amazement pullulated. Suddenly the room – located in the Meisel-Center – had a second terace with an amazing view on a Tyrolean mountain pasture with five cows in morning mist.
The funny story of origination, presented by the artist, offered an interesting insight into the mode of operation in illusion painting.

"Gabriela Biechl - Nudes in acrylic on canvas" Gallery
Thomas Berghuber, 2130 Mistelbach
Gabriela Biechl is a clever and lively Viennese, born in 1971,
and a self-taught artist..
She worked with pencil, sanguine and carbon until 2004. She then started
to work with acrylic. Her original use of colouring is amazing. Her
talent for observation leaves observers astonished with the intensity
of her work.
Press report on the occasion of the exhibition in the Gallery Thomas
Berghuber, December, 2007
Report of the exhibition opening:
I polarise with great pleasure.
Something is happening! Thomas Berghuber Gallery opened the
gates for the first artist. Gabriela Biechl shows colourful paintings
MISTELBACH / Her parents wanted her to learn a useful profession,
certainly not an artistic one. She became an X-ray assistant and enjoyed
painting in her spare time. She was always fascinated by the human
body which due to her profession she sees only in black and white.
She loves to paint Nudes in shrill and strong colours. Gabriela Biechl
has a natural sense for the essential details of the Motive. Her exhibitions
attract much attention and her audiances are enthusastic buyers of
her work. Her commissioned works of human and animal portraits form
a large part of her work..
The philosophy, to use the gallery as a turntable for communication,
is - for the allrounder Thomas Berghuber - most important. Of course
the gallery also owns its own work of art, trough which the art enthusiast
can saunter for enjoyment and shopping. Art openings serve for breaking
the routine and for making art accessible to a broader public. However
they should be a place for contacts, talks and pleasures too.
At the opening of the first Vernissage in the M-Passage, wine
of the Galeehof was offered by the owner Thomas Berghuber.
