Free-hanging sculpture from wire, textiles, plastic mass and oil. Signed below and dated (19)69.
In the 1940s, Bernard Schultze began to free himself from the conventions of painting. He then quickly advanced to become one of the most important representatives of German Informel, which was decisively influenced by the «Quadriga» artists’ group co-founded by him and K.O. Götz, among others. Bernard Schultze’s sculptural works, the so-called «Migof», illustrate a central principle of his work, that of letting oneself drift without following a concrete design. Association and chance determine the final form of the works. The Migofs are fluid beings that are in a constant state of metamorphosis.
