Christoph Robausch‘s work expresses itself through simple creative acts of asking about and marking the nature of change. Recording this process in multiple layers of mixed oil, india ink and microcrystalline wax painting on canvas originates extraordinary surfaces. Subsequent flaming, scratching, glueing and folding transforms and converts these surfaces into sculptural paintings and sculptures. And this has been developing and evolving in the course of time – and it is still going on.
Christoph Robausch was born in Austria in 1959 and studied at Technical University Graz and University of Economics, Vienna. After two decades as product designer, interior designer and art director for international companies, he trained as a multi media designer and programmer. After another decade of freelance work in multimedia design and multimedia art design, Christoph Robausch became an independent artist and produced more than 3000 RF videos (short animated clips). Since 2016 his focus is on largescale paintings, sculptural paintings and sculptures. The extraordinary surface of these artworks is also the basis for his newest video footage.
