Austrian painter Christoph Schmidberger’s adolescent dandies are typical of a youth culture that peoples his work. Schmidberger paints a teenage beauty that has been described being close to a fall from grace, and it does seem that an unhappy narcissism is being depicted. One gets the feeling that if something hasn’t gone terribly wrong yet, some nameless danger is on the way. It could be disguised as life itself, ready to be embraced by the youth that wear their confidence as they would the latest fashion.
