Max Bill

Between 1936 and 1949, Swiss artist, designer, architect and teacher Max Bill wrote, "Concrete painting and sculpture are the result of giving form to the visually perceptible. Their creative tools are color, space, light and movement. By giving form to these elements, one creates new realities, abstract ideas which previously existed only in the mind and are made visible in a concrete form. In short, concrete art is the pure expression of harmonious measure and law. It organizes systems and gives life to these arrangements by means of art. It is real and spiritual; non-naturalistic while close to nature. It aspires to the universal yet cultivates the unique; it suppresses individuality in favor of the individual." Four Constructions on a Single Theme (1935-38) is reproduced from Fundacion Juan March's exceptional new overview.
