Janos Ber - À main levée

À main levée is the result of a long process of reflection by the artist Janos Ber on colour and design arising simultaneously.


À main levée is the result of a long process of reflection on colour and design arising simultaneously. A game too, with the white of the paper, throughout a series of 9 colour plates that succeed each other like one breath after another.

This series is accompanied by texts written by Janos Ber, extracts from his book “Un Rouge ciel, peintures et notes sur la peinture” (Adam Biro, 1997). These texts were chosen to form an autonomous ensemble, clarifying certain unvarying aspects of his thinking as a painter. Written in black, in freehand, on large white sheets, like ‘written drawings’, they punctuate an approach to seeing.

For this special edition, Janos Ber worked directly with the serigraph, composing the colours and designs, seeking the perfect harmony of the instant.
