Triangle in process

In the years 1985 to 1991 Markus Krüger made the triangle the primary element of his pictures within a gestural-unobjective way of painting. After the triangle – as a geometric form – was still to be found everywhere in the painting in those days, it has been isolated from its original integration during the past 3 years.

Today it forms the center of a way of painting which, by the way, never favoured canvas as colour-carrying material, but always paper. Markus Krüger plays about the triangle in a serial way, which means that the artist is interested in a picture-generating process and not in a singular, final statement. Instead the artist aims at a continuous involvement in pictorial space, colour and form.
