Lothar Quinte
Gegenfächer Blau-Rot, 1968

Perceiving nature, penetrating into the deeper layers of being and existence, making immaterial musical sounds into pictures – this produces an intellectual horizon that helps us to see and understand Lothar Quinte´s picture world. After his studies with HAP Grieshaber, and after an early phase of gesticulatory painting, he is allocated to the generation of German Concrete artists after 1945, along with Rupprecht Geiger and Günter Fruhtrunk. In the period between 1964 and 1979 Quinte developed works that come very close formally to the geometrically abstract compositions of the Concrete and Constructivist artists, though unlike them they repeatedly suggest reflection on picture space as well as the three-dimensional lighting effects of color. The Gegenfächer Blau-Rot (Counter-Fans Blue-Red) is a major work dating from the late 1960s. Three-dimensional perception is evoked by the conically tapering bands of diachromatic color that produce two reflected fans, staggered horizontally.
