Pierre Muckensturm Is an abstract, minimal and concrete painter and print maker.
Born 1970 in Strasbourg, France. He now lives and works in Colmar.
He started to learn geography in 1989 and he specialized himself in land management at Science College of Strasbourg. Few years later, during his formation he met a professor from the Art College of Strasbourg who shared his passion for painting to him. From 1997 to 2001, Muckensturm attended art working groups which made him possible to present his first works during collective exhibitions at the Rhineland Center of Contemporary Art of Altkirch (France).
His first art collectors where architects, absorbing their passion for design and architecture Muckensturm discovered some unknown works of Le Corbusier : his Modulor theory and his edifice Notre dame du Haut.
Muckensturm says : “I discovered, more than 20 years ago, the chapel of Ronchamp, a late work of the architect Charles Edouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier. I did not feel, either before or after, such a perception of the correctness of the possibilities between massiveness and elevation, between straight line and curved line. Then began for me this long search, which still feeds me today, aiming to approach the most appropriate relationship between full and empty, between linearity and curvature”

About Pierre Muckensturm


IconInspires

What inspires you?

I'm inspired by lines, surfaces and movement. Concrete art is abstract art that is entirely free of any basis in observed reality and that has no symbolic meaning. There is nothing more concrete or more real than a straight or curved black line or a flat black areas.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I examin surfaces or lignes in detail, I transform them gradually, explore how they communicate differently as I alters their size, shape and orientation.


IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

This 3 words could be : minimalism, calm, timelessness.


IconUser

Who are some artists that have influenced your work?

My works are influenced by the works and words from the architect Le Corbusier, by the minimal works from the artist Martin Barré, or the constructed works from François Morellet and vera Molnar. All my research follows the idea of the artist Julius Bissier who said that : "Calm is stronger than the storm".

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

My sketchbook to design new layouts or shapes, my computer to change them and my paintbrushes.

The architect Mies Van Der Rohe said "less is more" but I think he said wrong because Less is enough.


IconLightbulb
