Hans Jörg Glattfelder
The constructivist painter and author Hans Jörg Glattfelder
born 1939 in Zurich .
In the beginning he was influenced by the “concrete
art of Zurich”, but soon he took his own way: in the late sixties he
inquired into the possibility of creating art work by the means of anonymous,
industrial production (“pyramid reliefs”); in the seventies he
introduced the topic of the “non-euclidean” geometry as a base
for his artistic production (“non-euclidean metaphors”).
In many articles, interviews and theoretical contributions
Hans J. Glattfelder speaks up for an exercise of art based on rational inventiveness
(“meta-rationalism” 1983) and he asks for an interdisciplinary
opening and communication between the many expressions of “constructivism”
in science and art (“methodical constructivism”).
From 1961 – 1997 Glattfelder lived in Italy , since 1998 in Paris .
