Product Description

The linocut book „Porträt“ was released on the occassion of the solo exhibition „Portraits“ at the Berlin-based Gallery Christian Ehrentraut from 10/1 until 21/2/2009.
Besides the images of the artworks shown at the exhibition „Porträt“ contents 88 original linocuts which were cut after silhouettes by Ruckhäberle. These original linocuts are used as frame works and additional material to the offset-printed images of the paintings. „Porträt“ is therefore not simply an exhibition catalogue but an artists‘ book which joyfully reflects the hierachy of „high art“ and original prints: it is because of the original graphics that this book is a valuable piece of art, although it contains images of much more valuable artworks. The mixture of offset-printed reproductions of his paintings and the abstract, very graphic forms of the linocuts give a dense view into Ruckhäberles‘ repertoire.
