BIOGRAPHY

Germany, b.1957
Bernd Haussmann employs a deep exploration of color, gesture, texture and surface in paintings on metal, acrylic glass, wood, canvas and paper that seem to mimic some of the ways that natural surfaces change as a result of time, temperature, environment. Haussmann’s work distills and interprets a range of sources and observations, from nature to language to dreams to architecture to a total investment in the possibilities inherent in a single color. Haussmann’s singular elements are illuminated by bold colors and a discussion of gesture, surface and the subconscious that, though contemporary in nature, can be traced directly back to the moment of abstract expressionism’s passionate public introduction and the philosophy that defined Provincetown’s schools from Hofmann to Stout.
