With the help of contemporary media, he draws a parallel to this main work of realism in his new works, both aesthetically and in terms of content. Menzel shows the precarious working conditions of workers at the height of the industrial revolution. For Auer, the contrast in Menzel's painting between the atmospherically illuminated, flowing clothes and their unreal surroundings is the starting point for his fabric pictures. Figurativeness and spatial abstraction merge inseparably into hybrid assemblages of light and materiality. The artificial and hyper-real appearance of the works by Florian Auer refers to a post-digital present in which a progressive alienation of body and work becomes recognizable.
