German painter Andreas Karl Schulze’s minimalist color installations flowing through the Albers Museum, Bontrop, are intense and immediate. The staging, structuring and shifting of color ratios in irregular patterns on objects, museum walls and freestanding plywood panels engage and enliven both the museum collection and the gallery spaces. Twenty color plates methodically edited for this intimate exhibition catalog amply convey both the artist’s intent and the dance of Schulze’s color pattern installations among Albers’s iconic paintings of color squares. In terms of perception and reduction, Schulze is an ideal partner for Josef Albers’s homage to the square. An interview by museum curator Heinz Liesbrock with Schulze gets to the heart of the Schulz’s work, which the artist himself describes as turning “attempts to understand into perceiving and experiencing.” Since 1996, Schulze has engaged in grand-scale projects extending to five countries—from the US (Chinati Foundation, Texas, invited by Donald Judd) to Siberia, Russia; Thule, Greenland; Brisbane, Australia; and Hyogo, Japan.
