Description

Max bill is considered as the father of concrete art in Europe, founder of the Konkrete Kunst in 1944, a movement of artists, graphic designers and architects joined together with the purpose of creating non-figurative works based on extremely simple formal elements: right angled lines and primary colours without shading. The work shown, painted in 1959, has a diamond shape, it is a white square rotated to a 45-degree angle inside of which there is a black longitudinal section which corresponds to a quarter of the surface. The titanium white – applied with a spatula and is a substitute to the creamy white used since the 1930s – plays a fundamental role in Bill’s works: distancing himself from the theories of Kandinskij and Malevich, indeed the Swiss artist begins to consider white as a colour to all intents and purposes.
