Bernard Aubertin was born in 1934, French. He is known for his monochromatic red paintings, which create a depersonalized, mediated experience: they symbolize fire and blood, while at the same time allowing him the space for anonymity. A member of the experimental Dusseldorf Zero Group—founded by Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, and Günther Uecker in 1963—Aubertin reacted against Art Informel and Neo-Expressionism and was interested in developing a new art rooted in international collaborations, concepts, and ideas. 

Exhibitions

 
Since the 1960s, his work has been widely exhibited throughout Europe and the United States, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York), the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), and the Palais de Tokyo (Paris). 

Notes

 
Aubertin’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Musee de Graz, the Museum of Dusseldorf, and the Centre National de l’Art Contemporain (Paris), among others.

Artist Info:

Remo Brindisi was trained by his father and studied at the Experimental Centre of Stage Design in Rome and at the Institute of Book Decoration and Illustration in Urbino. In 1940 held first solo show in Florence followed by a move to Venice and large-scale involvement in exhibitions and consistent participation in the Rome Quadrennial and the Venice Biennial as well as connections with the major private galleries of Milan and Venice.
The post-war period saw a short phase marked by the influence of Cubist painting as interpreted in an expressionistic and existential sense. Brindisi formed the Gruppo di Linea together with Gianni Dova and Ibrahim Kodra and was later associated with the realist movement, while maintaining complete autonomy with respect to the major artistic trends of the age. His focus on issues of social comitment and protest culminated in the period 1960–61 with a series of large paintings devoted to the history of Fascism, in which figurative painting of an expressionist character was combined with an approach modelled on the examples of Art Informel. The 1970s and ’80s saw the continuation of the same repertoire distinguished by intense and violent colour and characteristically flattened figures in two-dimensional space. Brindisi was director of the Macerata Academy of Fine Arts and president of the Milan Triennial in 1972.

Sandro Chia was born in Florence in 1946. He studied at the Istituto d’Arte and then at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence where he graduated in 1969. After graduation, he travelled extensively in India, Turkey and throughout Europe before settling in Rome in 1970. During the 1970’s he began to exhibit in Rome and Europe, gradually moving away from conceptual  works towards a more figurative style of painting. Between September 1980 and August 1981 he received a scholarship from the city of Monchengladbach in Germany where he moved to work for a year. The following year he moved  to New York City, where he will remain for over two decades, with frequent trips back to Montalcino, near Siena in Italy.
 
He is part of the Italian “Transavanguardia” movement, exhibiting in many of the most important museums and galleries of the world. He has exhibited at the Biennale of Paris and San Paolo and three times at the Venice Biennale. His work has been part of  internationally acclaimed museum group shows.

Giorgio De Chirico was born in Volos, Greece, to a Genovese mother and a Sicilian father. He studied art in Athens and Florence, moving to Germany in 1906 where he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. There he read the writings of the philosophers Nietzsche, Arthur Schopenhauer and Otto Weiningerand and also studied the works of Arnold Böcklin and Max Klinger. In the years prior to World War I, De Chirico founded the art movement called "Scuola Metafisica" which profoundly influenced the surrealists.
 
Moving to Florence in 1910, De Chirico painted the first of his 'Metaphysical Town Square' series, 'The Enigma of an Autumn Afternoon'. The following year he moved to Paris and met Pierre Laprade, a member of the jury at the Salon d'Automne, where he exhibited three of his works and subsequently at the Salon des Indépendants and Salon d’Automne. Here, De Chirico won praise for his work almost immediately from the writer Guillaume Apollinaire, who helped to introduce his work to the later Surrealists. De Chirico strongly influenced the Surrealist movement: Yves Tanguy. Other Surrealists who acknowledged De Chirico's influence include Max Ernst, Salvador Dalí and René Magritte. Other artists as diverse as Giorgio Morandi, Carlo Carrà, Paul Delvaux, Carel Willink, Harue Koga, Philip Guston and Sylvia Plath were also influenced deeply by De Chirico.

Artist Info:

A. R. Penck is considered a Neo-Expressionist along with artists such as Sigmar Polke and Anselm Kiefer. He is best known for his paintings and sculptures characterized by simplified figures and forms, and neo-primitive symbols and patterns. Born Ralf Winkler, the artist adopted his pseudonym after reading the work of the geologist Albrecht Penck. A.R. Penck lived in East Berlin from 1963 to ’72; unable to exhibit there publicly, he smuggled works out to West Berlin and Switzerland, where he enjoyed enough fame to provide him some protection from the German police. Penck’s style fused spontaneous self-expression with restraint, and pop cultural and art historical influences with political and social concerns. As a sculptor, he was constructing objects as early as the ’60s made from cardboard boxes, slats, used bottles, and tinfoil and later, in the ’80s, he made sometimes-monumental wooden sculptures. Penck was also a jazz musician and published theoretical writings, sometimes juxtaposing or interspersing them with poems. He worked collaboratively at various times with the West German artist Jorg Immendorff.

Exhibitions

He was recognized with numerous solo exhibitions at major museums around the world and participated in

  • Documenta (1972, 1977, 1982, and 1992) in Kassel, Germany
  • Venice Biennale (1984)
