Rupert Eder

Image linked to artists homepage
Rupert Eder is somehow addicted in searching the "well done picture". Well done pictures do mean something trans-temporal to him, since those seem to be independet of the flow of time.
„There is no inner meaning with my works“, Rupert Eder states with recourse to US-american painter Agnes Martin. Form and colour are the content per se, the pictures are created as they are, they exist.

That means, his pictures emerge -
- missing any theoretic considerations behind
- without any relation to real life,
just mere doing and proceeding with the paintig process, exploring and searching for new forms of expression for sake of seeing, experiencing and witnessing in a very personal way.
