In Untitled (for Otto Freundlich), Anselm Reyle pays tribute to one of Abstraction’s unsung heroes. Influenced by his early work on the stained glass windows in Chartres Cathedral, Fruendlich’s paintings and sculptures were denounced by the Nazi’s, and much of his work was destroyed before the artist’s tragic death in Majdanek concentration camp in 1943. Reworking the fractured aesthetic of Freundlich’s kaleidoscope paintings, Reyle’s mixed media homage frames the originals as a seed of futuristic legacy. The predominance of black patches indicates mourning, while bright colours encapsulate a sense of spiritualism and triumph.
