Gotthard Graubner

German artist, studied in Berlin and Dresden Academy of Art. Bringing a new awareness to contemporary painting, Graubner reflected the intensity of color and space in his works. Gotthard Graubner, known as one of the greatest painters of contemporary art, sees the human body as an living organism. In his work he emphasized that color is concentrated in some way and transformed into a living organism. Gotthard Graubner's works breathe.
Graubner’s visual and tactile objects create a three-dimensional color field that can be entered and spiritually experienced. He describes his process as one focused on “movement: out, flowing, streaming, getting held up, being blocked, pushing through, flowing again, finding peace.”
Gotthard Graubner was a German painter known for his sparing and ethereal use of color. Graubner’s work was never swayed by trends in the art world, and his closest contemporary influence was Mark Rothko—with whom he shared a sense of pictorial, floating space created through close tonal values and stains of varied color temperatures. Born on June 13, 1930 in Erlbach, Germany, Graubner studied painting at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf between 1954 and 1959. His work can be seen in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Graubner died on May 24, 2013 in Neuss, Germany.
