Lot Details

This stark Minimalist work on paper by Bernar Venet reflects the artist's ongoing preoccupation with the segmented line and its relation to depth in space.

Bernar Venet (b. 1941) is an acclaimed French Conceptual artist best known for his Minimalist paintings and sculptures. In addition to exploring the nature of curves and lines, his work across various media frequently engages with the mathematical underpinnings of the visible world. Venet has had solo exhibitions at the Chateau de Versailles (2011); the Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, Korea (2011); IVAM, Valencia, Spain (2010); Les Abattoirs, Toulouse, France (2010); Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels, Belgium (2009); the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, South Korea (2007); and the Jardin des Tuileries, Paris, France (2003), among many others. He has also worked as a stage designer, filmmaker, furniture designer, and composer. In 2005, Venet was made a Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur. He lives in Le Muy, France and New York, NY.
