With his pictures of basic geometric forms in intensive colors, the Munich artist takes the ideas of Constructivism to a rhythmical imagery. While works from his early period of creation are characterized by formal severity, colors in later works dissolve and the formerly accurate dividing lines between the color stripes become more fringed. The system of diagonal order is maintained, however, in a more monumental manner. Rhythm also remains key aspect of the pictures while it becomes more spacious and airier. Now the picture is less dominated by stripes and vectors but by color fields. In this painting yellow is the predominant color and coalesces with black and white. Light and its negation as darkness, as well as the colors’ expressive values are the main pictorial theme. Contrasts do not aim at a harmonious balance, on contrary, they provoke an impression of dynamic motion, a tension characteristic of Fruhtrunk’s oeuvre and decisive factor up until the end. [CE]
