Rudolf Leitner-Gründberg belongs to the mystics among painters. His often large-format works, objects, and installations lead the viewer into a world behind the visible, full of beauty and meditative silence. Gründberg considers art to be meaningful, a path that leads out of duality and overcomes pain and illusion. Precious materials, above all gold, silver, and lapis lazuli, have become the trademark of the internationally renowned painter, alongside the symbol of the crown. The radiance of gold transcends the world of illusion and connects man with his true essence. Gründberg’s works point to a deeper vision of what man ideally is, thereby appealing to humanistic values. With the exhibition «Transfiguration», the artist painterly transcends the boundaries of the visible and, thus, the world of external appearances.
