Folding is the determining principle in the artistic work of Hermann Glöckner. This example comes in red and blue in a white wooden frame. The size of the frame is h 76.5 / w 60.5 cm. The work itself h 60 / w 44.5 cm. The strictly geometric structures in Glöckner's works are reminiscent of Russian Suprematism of the 1920s famously represented by Kasimir Malewitsch. But Glöckner created an independent work with his panels. For eighty years he devoted himself to elementary questions of line, surface, color and space. His works shows strong links to Wassily Kandinsky, El Lissitzky, Piet Mondrian and László Moholy-Nagy, who were represented at the 1926 International Art Exhibition in Dresden. He is a co-founder of constructivism and can be linked to Anton Stankowskis constructive graphic.
