Biography

Since the 1980s, Heimo Zobernig has explored modernist ideas like Minimalism, the grid, and color theory. He is best known for his grid and diamond paintings, which reference Piet Mondrian and Blinky Palermo, as well as monochromes that recall the work of Wassily Kandinsky and Josef Albers. Recent works combine monochromes with language to suggest how the written word affects our vision, as in a dusty orange canvas in which "NEW COAT OF PAINT" can be discerned. The artist's sculptures, videos, and installations similarly show a playful use of space and color.
