Gotthard Graubner – A Retrospective In Honour Of His 90th Birthday

Gotthard Graubner addresses the medium Colour in his works. Colour is at the core of his pictorial concept and free of representational or thematic integration. It stands for itself and has its own expression: “Colour develops as a colour-organism; I observe how it grows, I respect the laws inherent in it”, Graubner once said in 1969. Starting out from monochrome painting, Gotthard Graubner developed what he himself called Kissenbilder (cushion paintings) since the mid 1960s, refining them later into Farbraumkörper (colourspace bodies), which transcend the flat, two-dimensional boundaries of the conventional panel.
