Work in the collection: Jo Niemeyer, Untitled, 2007, acrylic on canvas on wood, lacquer on steel, 129 x 129 cm
Jo Niemeyer’s works are a combination of classic modern elements and Asian thinking. His recurring forms include cubist motifs as well as squares and rectangles. In terms of colour, they also follow primary colours such as blue, red, yellow, black and white. Above all, however, his works are accompanied by the Golden Ratio, which since ancient times has been regarded as a guarantor of beauty and pleasure.
