Sculpture: Paint, Wax, Rubber, Marble on Wood.
Juxtaposing traditional approaches to painting with unique materials, Robausch uses industrial synthetic wax, marble dust, oil paint, polyethylene foam and Masonite 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."

▪ 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.
