About

In "Find", Rudolf expresses the idea that; similarly to the satirical novel "Gulliver's Travels", humans are confronted with an inexplicable encounter and do not know how to react to it. Although the situation could be very dangerous for both of them, people are curious and approach what attracts them. Rudolf Kosow uses three essential elements in his work: human, animal and nature. He is particularly interested in the composition of these components within a painting to achieve a creation of a special atmosphere and situation. Rudolf Kosow tries to transcend the border of pure realism and is constantly on the lookout for new image content and motifs. This creates surrealistic relationships between humans, animals and nature, which are unlikely in real life or completely impossible. Another important element in many works of Rudolf Kosow is the light and its representation in the painting. Since ancient times, human longs for the heat that creates a fire, of course, this heat is also associated with light: thus, a strong light source for us humans has a very attractive and magical effect. Human and animal searching for this light is a longing that should never end. In more recent works Rudolf Kosow plays again in the sense of surrealism with completely absurd and unrealistic proportions between human and animal. Rudolf studied art and painting at the Art Academy in Stuttgart, Germany. His painting studio is located in Laichingen, Germany.
