Franz Grabmayr’s motifs are the elements: water, fire, heaven, earth. Nature is his home: rivers and rocks, roots and trees, haystacks and sand pits.

Viewed from close up, his paintings - of a sculptural materiality and frequently weighing up to 60 kg - are reminiscent of abstract, random compositions whose urgent presence leaves us mesmerized by lively brushstrokes, the rhythmic motion of which would seem to be a universally determining factor.
From farther away, however, one senses how closely they hew to their objects of study - and there emerge landscapes, rock formations, the wavy lines of fire and smoke, and the ecstatic motions of people dancing as the music’s rhythm flows through their bodies.
