stars above getreidemarkt

In his Viennese astral cycle, Thomas Rucker addresses the stars in an imaginative manner. Differing stars are depicted according to varying stages of development.
By means of Rucker’s characteristic working technique of baroque oil paint layering, large, three-dimensional portraits are created, incorporating materials found in nature. The astral bodies are depicted in their explosive colorfulness, based on the spectral colors of the stars.
This cycle is part and parcel of Rucker’s typical serial approach to a given subject, which is then dealt with in line with natural expressionism. “Natural” refers to the source of the materials utilized, to untreated nature, and the type of theme clusters, which exhibit a natural progression.
