Bušs, Santa: Calligraphie abstraite (Hommage à Georges Mathieu) 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The inspiration for this work has been brought from the French artist Georges Mathieu (1921-2012), one of the representatives of the lyrical abstractionism, and more precisely his large format works from the 1950s and 1960s. Studying the work of Mathieu, reading his reflections, watching videos of his working methods, I was captured by the spontaneity and speed at which he worked, as well as the way he created his associative action painting. In his brightest paintings of that period one can see the same artistic handwriting, and this composition is also made both directly and associatively referring to that. 

    The works of Mathieu are both saturated and laconic at the same time, and though they are made spontaneously, they give the impression of a well organised and balanced composition. The united colour palette and common gestures leave lines and points on the canvas, that resemble accomplished and spontaneous, yet abstract calligraphy. Whereas the work method includes periods of intense activity and abrupt distancing from the large canvas in order to see the “bigger picture” and decide on the following steps… 

    The work process as well as the body language of the artist and painting motives are aspects which I have tried to interpret in the piece 'Calligraphie abstraite (Hommage à Georges Mathieu)'.
