Christoph Ruckhaberle’s China executes the power of will over logic. Using painting as a tool of invention, Ruckhaberle’s scene defies reason in exchange for paradoxical intrigue. Furniture and tableware fly in violent chaos while retaining an effect of controlled calmness, their psychic energy resonating from the concentrated central figure. Ruckhaberle renders this image with unsettling impartiality; psychological torment becomes a problem of geometric design. Motion is frozen in compositional elegance, fragmented into oscillating squares and orbs. Neutralising his subject matter, Ruckhaberle creates a sense of magic through the complexity of construction, making the impossible accessible through discipline and volition of imagination.
