Ruprecht von Kaufmann's paintings are unnerving. They thrust viewers into face-to-face confrontations with the vulnerable, naked and trapped, the compromised and the morally ambiguous. Daunting as well is Von Kaufmann's technical facility. He paints physical and psychological aspects of the human figure with uncanny persuasiveness. At 28, Von Kaufmann has already had a handful of well-received solo exhibitions in San Diego, Chicago and Los Angeles.

F. Scott Hess describes his stunning cycle of paintings on view at the Orange County Museum of Art as "prayers for atheists." They are religious paintings, he says, "bereft of God but searching for the core of what it means to be human."
