JEAN DUBUFFET
1975, acryl/paper on canvas

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.
