Squares, rectangles, polygons with curved edges, circles and segments of circles, reflected, multiplied and placed opposite each other with various color contrasts – these are the key elements of Léon Wuidar’s compositions. Museum Haus Konstruktiv is dedicating an exhibition to this Belgian artist (b. in 1938), the first of its kind in Switzerland. Works spanning the period from the 1960s to the present day will be on display.
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. The exhibition at Museum Haus Konstruktiv traces this artistic development and presents the full complexity and multifaceted nature of an as-yet little-known oeuvre to the Swiss public.
