Work on Paper: Minimal Art

The central question here is what the effect is of a dominant (black) surface that has no reference to the real world. The plane should not want to become a thing, even though this sometimes happens by accident. The human mind is (unintentionally) looking for recognizable elements and also scans the image as such. Here, however, the subject is not a figuration but rather an organization of planes and mutual relationships.

The series of 10 works on paper are set up according to a principle of using as little color as possible; limitation in color makes other things (shape, balance,) increase in intensity.
