A typical nail picture inspired by the ZERO movement 

In the late 1950s, Bernard Aubertin began to experiment with the effect of pure color and light and the possibilities of movement. In the 1960s he created his first monochrome works with different surfaces or – as seen in the present work – with the structures of nails. The dominant color of this work phase is a warm vibrant red tone.

The frame shows minor paint chipping; otherwise, the work is in very good condition.

Bernard Aubertin (1934-2015)
The French painter, media and object artist Bernard Aubertin was born in Fontenay-aux-Roses and moved to Paris to study at the École des Metiers d'Art and afterwards at the École de Formation des Professeurs de Dessin from 1950-1953. Aubertin first painted landscapes, portraits and still lifes in the tradition of the pre-war avant-garde, until he met the young painter Yves Klein in 1957, who encouraged him to reflect upon the effects of pure color, light, movement and abstract sculptures. In 1958, Aubertin created his first monochrome paintings that were characterized through the use of vibrant red paint. Black paintings enhanced his artistic output from the 1980s. A famous follower of the ZERO movement, Aubertin is well-known for his nail pictures that have characterized his creative production since 1960. Moreover, the artist has worked with different materials, including fire, matches and fireworks. Aubertin exhibited his works in numerous international shows, including exhibitions in Paris (1972), Florence (1974), Caracas (1989) and Milan (1990). (cko)
