Art Description

Sculpture: Oil, Marble, Wax on Other.

Juxtaposing traditional approaches to painting and sculpture with unique materials, Robausch uses industrial synthetic wax, marble dust and oil paint as part of his working process, sculpturing shapes before painting in them. In the process of cooling down, the fluid artwork changes to a heavy and very solid structure with a fragile impression.

Robausch describes his work as “At 260 degrees Celsius it is a diaphanous painting, after cooling down it is a diaphanous sculpture. And the powerful act of this morphogenesis is recorded in colour whirls, cracks, ridges, craters and bubbles. This transformation from hot liquid to cold, solid matter emanates a special presence.”

▪ 63 H x 111 W x 5 cm, 7 kg
▪ 24.8 H x 43.7 W x 2 in, 15.4 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 surface with its ridges, craters and cracks looks different depending on the light and the angle of view.
▪ It has wax-like characteristics but is very hard and scratch resistant and not affected by sun and high room temperatures
▪ The piece is multilayered, giving it a floating, more dimensional effect.
▪ This work comes signed by the artist on lower left of recto and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
▪ Will be shipped in a protective crate
