Neige et Renard by Leopold Rabus, oil on canvas, 230 x 300 cm, 2007 – click to enlarge
Artist families showing together is an extremely sweet thing and way too rare in this age, so even though I have no clear idea of what’s going to be on show, rest assured that it will be a highly personal and emotional show that you shouldn’t miss.
And look, aren’t they just the cutest?!

My favourite of the bunch is obviously young Leopold Rabus from Neuchâtel – whom I featured here a couple of times in the past and whose artistic proficiency continues to amaze me with his Tauwetter aesthetic, his collapsed perspectives, his honest and so very non-Swiss look at filth, anatomy and degeneration, his Balzacian description of landscapes that look like eternal battlefields – forever picturesquely traumatised.
