Gerhard Hoehme

 

Gerhard Hoehme (1920 - 1989) was a German painter and graphic artist who is considered an important representative of abstract art after the Second World War and the German Informel. Hoehme's own, special painting style continued the tradition of shaped canvas. He mixed the color material and created spatial structures and combined spatial elements with painted surfaces with his paintings. He dealt with combine painting, created calligraphic typefaces, structure pictures and object pictures. From the 1970s, he created his so-called “damask pictures”. In doing so, he wanted to create "open pictures" that were no longer only effective on the screen, but should be present in the viewer.
