Léopold Rabus

The work of Swiss artist Léopold Rabus involves detailed paintings and installations inspired by the artist’s experience in his small hometown with the people closest to him. Rural themes and portraiture dominate his oeuvre, emphasizing the slow passing of time and a sense of ritual repetition characteristic of small rural communities. Though his images provoke a grand visions of mortality, complex emotion, and the natural world, the richness of Rabus’ work lies in the small details. 


Rabus has exhibited extensively, having held solo exhibitions at GEM The Hague, Jacobshalle Basel, La Carré SainteAnne in Montpellier and Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven in Germany. He is the recipient of the Swiss Art Award (2006) and the Italian Premio Lissone (2005).
