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 color, these also follow the primary colors such as blue, red, yellow, black and white. Above all, however, his works are accompanied by the golden section, which has been considered a guarantee of beauty and well-being since ancient times.
