Herbert Zangs decided that he wanted to be an abstract painter after a 1953 trip to the Museum of Modern Art in Düsseldorf where he first saw paintings by Jackson Pollock. Considered a practitioner of Art Informel, throughout his five-decade-long career, Zangs embraced intuitive spontaneity and placed value on the creative act rather than the final product. Working at a small-scale, using cardboard, paper, fabric, and white paint, Zangs’s monochromatic work has an off-hand aesthetic that still seems challenging today.
