Jean Dubuffet, acryl on paper on canvas, 1975
This pioneer of the Outsider art was fascinated by the art of the marginalized, mentally ill and children. His art too was spontaneous, expressive and honest – free of intellectualism. His working progress evolved from the colourless relief-like matter painting technique to the use of colourful fields. Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) knew different periods and styles, from pure abstraction to more organic work.
‘Paysage’ is a colourful work from his period of accumulated cellular structures. This French artist also modelled styled, black/white sculptues. Nearby Wall Street in New York is his sculpture group of 4 monumental trees. His puzzle-like shapes are made of newsprint, cellulose, lava, rope and glass.
