Acht, René
1920 Basel - 1998 Herbolzheim.
Cut-out made of black photo cardboard on wove paper. Signed lower left and dated «14-12-(19)70».
H 100, W 70 cm (sheet). Framed.
«To make a cut-out, I need a simple, medium-sized pair of scissors and mostly black photo cardboard in the format 100 x 70 cm. For larger cuts I use black paper from a roll. All the works are cut with scissors and never with a knife. They are almost all cut from one piece, never from the same side or from a fold. [...] I draw with pencil laterally reversed on the cardboard, take the ruler for straight stretches, but I never use it as a running guide when cutting freehand. Inaccuracies in cutting testify to my physical and psychological state at the time. Distance creeps in between me and the cardboard, while I strive for objective design and timeless expression. The cutting itself often takes hours and is very exhausting. Cut-outs that become symbols, signs that are messages.» René Acht in: Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen, Kunstmuseum Singen and Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau (eds.), René Acht, Lyrisch-Konkret, Cologne 2021, p. 152f.
