About the Artist
Rudolf Linder’s works produce complexity on different levels. They fascinate and irritate, astonish, overflow and name relationships of surfaces, color spaces, patterns, strokes, figures and linear formations. The blurred, salient and hidden correlate with each other. Recognizable things are encompassed, limited and disturbed, connected things are cut off, and continuities face abrupt drops.
It is a spontaneous intuitive approach that distinguishes Linder. As a result, a first picture quickly adorns the blank canvas. From this image, develops another, and settles on it as an answer to the first one. Most of the works form a complete dialogue of a multitude of images one above the other. Each layer complements the existing to a new whole, and becomes progressively more complex and gains more depth.
Linder hardly gives figures and stories to which we can orient ourselves. Rather, the artist visualizes today’s society and draws attention to the different layers.
