The bug OP posted to the TDF Bugzilla instance was tdf#112550 however it was closed as a known issue, tdf#107166 Text is invisible, both in UI and in editor on update to 5.3.2, older AMD and Intel GPUs

It has been corrected for the 5.4 builds, but root cause is GPU and driver mishandling of the DrirectWrite Direct2D rendering that LibreOffice has moved to. On 5.3 builds, a driver update can help on an older Intel or AMD GPU, and forcing LibreOffice onto one or the other GPU when both integrated GPU (iGPU) and discrete GPU (dGPU) are involved. Intel CPU's iGPU with AMD dGPU graphics. But AMD iGPU with dGPU on Windows 10 has also had trouble -- tdf#112306 Text is invisible, both in UI and in editor, AMD R5 and R7 drivers Windows 10

LibreOffice has some graphics issues with the Windows builds caused by moving from legacy MS Windows GDI/GDI+ calls to current MS DirectWrite font managment and Direct2D rendering of text.
