The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

Vera Molnar

Als das Quadrat noch ein Quadrat war ...
The art of Vera Molnar, born in 1924 in Budapest, resident in Paris, is a consideration of the geometric and the systematic.
Her simple, clear geometric shapes are striking: they express a >>certain order>>, which moves >>between total chaos and perfect order>> (Molnar). The artist describes how the degree of chaos in one of her pictures always varies: >>the beauty of a picture increases, as the percentage of chaos decreases. But some chaos is always necessary>>. She places her >>visual situations>> next to each other, in order to compare and analyse them. This, in turn, becomes a deliberation on the principle of the series: its goal is to create deviations, often minimal, between the individual pictures.
