Description

"The method is the picture" is the bold principle adopted by Richard Paul Lohse, a Constructivist artist of Zurich. He sees his compositions, which are made up of equal pictorial elements, as a model for democratic coexistence. The bright colours, set in complementary or flowing gradations, form a cheerful counterpole to the picture's strict structure, which is based on modular or serial rules and principles.
