*NEW* OLIVIER MOSSET, 2019
Olivier Mosset has been living in Tucson, Arizona since 1996; he was born in 1944 in Bern. Since the mid-1970s he has been a representative of so-called Radical Painting, an abstract-geometric conception of painting that made art history in 1977 with the exhibition Radical Painting in Williamstown, New York, which proved to be defining in terms of style. One of its ideals is to undermine artistic originality through objectivity and seriality. Starting point was the question of what painting actually is, and how it works. To this end, Olivier Mosset created a diverse oeuvre of monochrome as well as abstract-geometric works, suppressing any mystifying attribution of meaning. The exhibition and book exemplify this and offer a varied overview of Olivier Mosset’s work, from the black circular rings to the two-tone stripe paintings, and the stars and monochrome canvases, which in their execution are devoid of any distinct individual characteristics.
