German Art Informel LOOKING IN THE LIGHTS, Assemblage, Collage Drawing

1967

About

What lies at the root of Schultze's great abstraction is Surrealist nature, mainly the woods, the roots, the undergrowth. Without being depictive at all, Schultze refers in his images to the structural properties of woodland. Lines and narrow stripes, spots and specks intertwine, sometimes creating an all-over structure, sometimes we find a central figure contrasting against a finely wrought and detailed background (the central figure possessing the same qualities), sometimes the central figure dominates the image without an explicit background. Bernard Schultze (31 May 1915 in Schneidemühl, now Piła, Poland – 14 April 2005 in Cologne) was a Polish, German abstract painter who co-founded the Quadriga group of artists (which included such artists as Otto Greis Karl Otto Götz, and Heinz Kreutz. Characterized by their gestural abstraction). He married another painter, Ursula Bluhm. Later he joined 'Zen 49', a group of artists who were inspired by Zen Buddhism. In 1956 Schultze began to build up the surface of his paintings to high relief. These led to the creation of his first 'Migofs' in 1961; free-standing works which include animal, plant and human imagery and which evoke the cycle of birth and decay. Art Movement: Art Informel, similar to the art brut of Jean Dubuffet)Haute Pâte (Matter Painting) known for painting, printmaking, sculpture and collage. His un­mis­tak­able works, with their of­ten unu­su­al for­mal in­ven­tions, were and are rep­re­sent­ed in ex­hi­bi­tions and mu­se­um col­lec­tions in Ger­many and abroad. The Mu­se­um Kun­st­palast in Düs­sel­dorf is show­ing Ber­nard Schultze (1915–2005): Works from the Kemp Col­lec­tion un­til Au­gust 30, 2015. The Jean Hans Arp Mu­se­um Bahn­hof Ro­land­seck will be pre­sent­ing Ein heller Hauch, ein funkel­n­der Wind: Ber­nard Schultze zum 100. Ge­burt­s­tag ( A Gen­tle Breeze, a Scin­til­lat­ing Wind) from June 19, 2015 to May 1, 2016. Schultze's art collection produced before 1945 was destroyed during an air raid on Berlin in 1945. Collected by major museums Tate in London, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) NY and the Museum Ludwig in Cologne. Berhard Schulze belonged to the last great names and precursors of German postwar-abstraction.
