The system of the Stuttgart painter Armin Martinmüller of combining rectangular forms freely and richly in relationships follows a principle comparable to music. The work with the opus number 50 is expressly dedicated to Franz Schubert. The motivic field of reference is charged in a vibrating surface space through the colorful cha-racterization of the basic elements, which combine to form a tonal score: The rectangle is the measurable building block of his creations. These elements can be shaped into complex orders. Normally, rhythmic structures are formed by logical arrangements in the horizontal, in the vertical and finally also in the diagonal, but here the vertical-right 'rods' dominate, which Martinmüller brings into a horizontal dynamic purely optically. A decisive role of individualizing differentiation is played by the color, which can hardly be measured or defined. Although its composition is developed in lengthy studies and experiments, the realm of the interactions of tonal colorations, leitmotifs, and intermediate tones ultimately eludes analytical precision - for all its plausibility.
