Bernard Aubertin

Bernard Aubertin is a French monochrome artist. He concentrates on the colour red as an expression of fire to create spaces of colour and light. 1961-1970 Bernard Aubertin took part in ZERO demonstrations. He is regarded as an important representative of the Düsseldorf group of artists.

He produced his red monochrome pictures with a wide variety of materials: for example, he created works from red nail pictures with splinters and fire-resistant grilles, from perforated red painted cardboard boxes, aluminium panels, as well as burnt-on wooden panels or from relief points.
