Juxtaposing traditional approaches to painting with unique materials, Robausch uses industrial synthetic wax, marble dust, oil paint and polyethylene foam as part of his painting process, casting and embossing his chosen shapes and forms before painting in them. In the process of cooling down, the fluid artwork changes to a heavy and very solid structure with a cracked, fragile impression. Robausch describes his work as “At 260 degrees Celsius it is a diaphanous painting, cooling down it is a diaphanous sculpture. And the powerful act of this morphogenesis is recorded in cracks, ridges and craters. This transformation from hot liquid to cold, solid matter emanates a special presence." ▪ 55 H x 55 W x 4 cm, 1.7 kg ▪ 21.6 H x 21.6 W x 1.6 in, 3.7 lb ▪ Unique combination of oil paint, marble dust, synthetic wax and polyethylene foam ▪ Traces of the cooling process from +260° Celsius down to -20° Celsius : ridges, craters and cracks ▪ The used synthetic wax has a very high melting point, sun and high room temperatures do not affect the artwork. ▪ It has wax-like characteristics but is very hard and scratch resistant. ▪ The surface with its ridges, craters and cracks looks different depending on the light and the angle of view. ▪ The piece is spaced from the wall by 2 cm giving it a floating, more dimensional effect. ▪ This work comes signed by the artist on lower right of recto and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. ▪ Will be shipped in a protective crate ▪ Easy to hang

Robausch’s artworks oscillate between painting and sculpture, texture and structure, matter and space. Based on his long experience in architecture and industrial design, he developed a special technique to build wall objects and freestanding sculptures. The essence of his objects is the specially designed supporting structure - currently - coated with aluminium. Painted with india ink and hand-sanded with diamond abrasive, his artworks create a timeless depth, with a unique atmosphere.
