Hann Trier / For the 100th birthday

 
Hann Trier (1915-1999), to whom Galerie Schlichtenmaier is organizing an exhibition on the occasion of his 100th birthday, is one of the grandees of Informel, who have been enjoying growing public interest for some years now. His lasting merits within that gestural style include, on the one hand, the conquest of the ceiling painting - he designed ceilings in Berlin, Heidelberg and Cologne, whose historical models have been lost. On the other hand, he actually found his personal handwriting through the conscious and unconscious use of his hands, painting with both hands. In this way he was able to unite spontaneity and discipline and at the same time create images that show dialogically choreographed structures on the canvas in the rhythm of dance. His credo: "I never paint what I see, / rarely what I saw, / always I see what I paint." So he did not need nature to find his typical-creative visual language, but he did need music and literature - he illustrated Kleist's essay "On the Gradual Fabrication of Thought in Speaking" and Sartre, who influenced Hann Trier as well as French culture in general.
