An artist whose works were heavily monochromic, Bernard Aubertin made use of the colour red as a means of evoking feelings and topics pertaining to the colour itself – be it violence, austerity, simplicity or fire. Initially, Aubertin was influenced by Klein, a fellow monochromic artist, and then went on to become a member of the Zero Dusseldorf Group alongside Heinz Mack and Piero Manzoni.
 
«There are two colours in my work, the black of fire, of caramelization, of cremation and the red of the monochrome painting. »
Bernard Aubertin
He began to incorporate fire into his work during the early 60’s - the natural spontaneity of fire helped Aubertin to create charred, unique works that denoted the capability of a destructive force to create and breathe life into something – a technique used in his Livre Brule piece.
 
« The way of colour-substance is the result of a conscious use of the psychic automatism of painting as a gesture that reveals the interior world. »
Bernard Aubertin

Asides from fire, Aubertin also used nails as a means of expression – one of his most famous works, Tablea Clous, is comprised of several nails in a wooden board, covered in a dense layer of vivid red paint; the shadows of these nails alter depending on the way the light is cast, or the angle from which an onlooker is viewing.

What is Emphemeral Art?

What is Emphemeral Art?

Ephemeral art only occurs one time. It generally lasts for a very short period of time, and cannot be displayed as a work of art in a gallery or museum. Performances, happenings, sound sculptures, flyers and mass produced items have all been ephemeral art.
