We are pleased to announce the solo art and gift book of our artist friend Gerhard Rasser from Austria. The paths of silence remind observers to be silent and walk without haste. Although every emotional turmoil seems to be smoothed out in these paintings, their empty spaces contain more action than it seems. Master Eckehart once opined: „To receive everything, we must let go of everything.“ Gerhard Rasser’s painting titles imply that this is a “Long Path” marked by temptations, abysses, and melancholy. A path of searching and getting closer, of losing oneself in worlds new and distant.

Relax and Rejoice with Art and Poetry
Silence is said to contain the long breath of eternity. With their open, unimpaired views, Gerhard Rasser’s paintings are peaceful resting places. Amid the noise of our media-dominated times, they invite observers to pause and fall silent. As they become one with the creative, artistic cosmos of the world, they manage to turn off all unnecessary noise. Pick up this art and gift book, and see for yourself. Embark on a pilgrimage to the core of your being.
Within its silence, you will discover new horizons. Just like haiku and Japanese ink wash paintings, the works of the Austrian resident of the Lake Constance area appear as clippings of truth reduced to its essentials, clearly outlined against the backdrop of eternity. From the soul of the artist springs forth a mysterious power. The close connection between art, poetry, and nature reaches the recipient by way of direct artistic transmission. As in haiga art, this book is a composition of images and poetry that affords peace and quiet to those leafing through it, while expanding their consciousness, and stimulating their senses.
