reflections of liquid days

Rucker deals with the subject of reflection in a variety of ways. The meaning of reflection is multi-faceted. On the one hand, there is the physical reflection, such as of waves, beams and light, on the other hand reflection meaning examination and contemplation.
With regard to the subject of reflections, photos and short films have resulted from visits to the seaside in Italy, to the Vltava river, Salzburg and Vienna. These photographic and film-making manifestations represent mere notes to the painter Thomas Rucker.
Oil paintings created in connection with the subject of reflections are realized on the basis of an intricate process. Seemingly transparent surfaces of light and access to other dimensions become apparent in these paintings. Rucker even mixes water into runny oil paints, so that the dried layers of paint exhibit a structure similar to drops of water. During the time these paintings were created, it rained a great deal in Austria, with other countries being hit by inundations. The artist documented this period by applying oil paints in a liquid manner.
Water, in this instance, being an elixir of life, as well as a deadly element.
