 Willi Müller-Hufschmid was a member of the German Artists' Association
Willi Müller-Hufschmid had to wait many years until he received the recognition he deserved at the age of 68. The beginnings of his painting can be assigned to the New Objectivity. 1945 follows a work in which Müller-Hufschmid decides with all consequences to abstraction and objectlessness. In painting and drawing, the artist finds meditative pictorial spaces full of symbolic signs, comparable to Paul Klee or Julius Bissier, and makes use of a variety of geometric forms. The abstract does not mean a break, but continuity. It is the attempt to dare a new beginning and to find elementary things, to fathom images with signs, patterns, geometric forms. His pictorial forms and figures are the result of the strongest inner experience and interpretation of the world. In his weightless floating image creations, these form into new beauty.
