The works of Alex Bär (* 1967 in Zurich) play with the tension between formal control and chance - between clearly defined figuration and abstract parts. His pictures combine figurative and abstract elements to create a fascinating formal language.
The focus is always on figures that fill the pictorial space with planar color settings. Thematically and formally, Alex Bär's painting draws a wide arc - from abstractly constructed landscapes to representational constellations.
Nevertheless, Alex Bär's art is characterized by a commitment to figurative painting and an enthusiasm for the artists of Classical Modernism. In addition to socio-political themes, his repertoire includes classical subjects from art history: still lifes, landscapes and nudes.
Alex Bär is represented at international trade fairs and major exhibitions.
