Artist Info: 
Bernard Aubertin was born in 1934, French. He is known for his monochromatic red paintings, which create a depersonalized, mediated experience: they symbolize fire and blood, while at the same time allowing him the space for anonymity. A member of the experimental Dusseldorf Zero Group—founded by Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, and Günther Uecker in 1963—Aubertin reacted against Art Informel and Neo-Expressionism and was interested in developing a new art rooted in international collaborations, concepts, and ideas. 


Since the 1960s, his work has been widely exhibited throughout Europe and the United States, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York), the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), and the Palais de Tokyo (Paris). 


Aubertin’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Musee de Graz, the Museum of Dusseldorf, and the Centre National de l’Art Contemporain (Paris), among others.
