AlexanderRutsh-LGheadshot“My dreams are color and life. They soar in my head like millions of symphonies. I can never stop building dreams.”

Alexander Rutsch was born in Russia in 1916 but raised in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. After studying voice in Austria he became and opera singer like his parents, but after WWI, Rutsch’s love for visual expression propelled him to change careers. He was a painter, sculptor, philosopher, musician, singer and poet.

He was an artist of the purest breed-an artist who had no choice but to paint. He was a chosen traveler of the depths of existence; a man who followed a longing to explore his inner self and relate his findings with the energy of the universe.

The celebrated Austrian artist approached painting and sculpting as he lived life- with the eyes of a child and the hand of a poet. Constantly in the quest for rhythms of form and vibrations of color, he caught the “sparks in the shadow” and evidenced their fullest reality and beauty in his creations. While he may have attributed certain artistic expressions to “coincidence”, his inspiration came from such diverse sources as: memories, dreams, sounds, numbers, telephone poles, and driftwood. Rutsch had an affinity to vibrant colors, strong contours and rich brush strokes, which are apparent in his oils, mixed media works and ink drawings.

His work is held in the collections of H.M Queen Fabiola of Belgium, Walter Cronkite of New York, Gala and Salvador Dali, Sammy Davis Jr, Jacqueline Kennedy- Onassis, Guy Laroche of Paris, Belgium’s Museum of Liège, Paris’s Musée d’Art Moderne, New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Baroness Alix de Rothschild of France.

Alexander Rutsch passed away in 1997. His friends, supporters and family established the bi-annual Alexander Rutsch Award and Exhibition competition for visual artist.  This program continues his belief that art transcends all of our humanity.
