Léon Wuidar, 2020
Squares, rectangles, polygons with curved edges, circles and circle segments, reflected, multiplied and placed opposite each other with various color contrasts – these are the key elements of the compositions that Léon Wuidar has been developing since the 1960s.
Léon Wuidar’s early paintings from the 1960s and 1970s are dominated by stylized architectural elements, such as columns, roofs or windows. In the 1980s, his vocabulary of forms became more minimalistic, whereas his color palette shifted from natural to brightly colorful hues. In his more recent works, which are sometimes also painted in pastel colors, wordplay can be found as well, conveying Wuidar's affinity with language and typography.
