Gottfried Honegger
Tableau-Relief P 731, 1974

  • Graphite on cardboard, mounted on canvas
  • 150 x 150 cm
  • Acquired in 1984

Gottfried Honegger developed his image type of the Tableau-Relief around 1950 and refined it until the nineties of the last century. While earlier works feature a tender membrane-like texture, the surface of later pieces show an enhanced relief-ductile that can change according to the exposure of light. None of the single fields, consisting of cartoon squares, which are coated with an electrographic pen and paste or are accentuated plastically by many lacquer layers, are identical to another, respectively are on the same level. In softened monochrome color emerges as moldable material. Honegger is aiming at the interdependence between ratio and sensation, conception and openness, at last at the interplay between the principles of order and his poetical correlate, the free play.
