“There is nothing to be said about painting, all we can talk about is the method used to deploy creative resources in realizing a concept. […] Material is the picture surface, the colors. The surface – in its limitations and extend – hast to be set in motion by color.” (A.B. 1970/2003)

Andreas Brandt studied until 1961 painting in Berlin, from 1968/69 onwards he produced works determined by stripes of color on a white background which display a certain affinity to Joseph Alber’s color studies. The visual weighting of the colors that confer rhythm and dynamism on the picture space makes vivid impact. This process shows a recognizable aesthetic relationship with the circle pictures of Alexander Liberman; Brandt worked mainly in California from 1973-76. The reductionist painting of both Liberman and Brandt shows links in terms of color and form that create an effect not just on color sounds, but also on spacial quality.
