John Armleder is perhaps Switzerland’s most important living artist and one of the most influential European artists of his generation. Through painting, sculpture, printmaking, installation, photography, video and performance, he is most widely know by his abstract (Pour Paintings) and formal (Dot Paintings and Geometric Abstractions) paintings, and especially his “Furniture Sculptures” which often juxtapose modern furniture with his abstract or formalist paintings. In addition, Armleder has produced photographs and video, often which are associated with his paintings and sculpture, and his installations pre-date and are often associated with “Scatter Art.” He has been making prints since the mid 1970s and has worked with every printmaking technique available. Particularly in the last 10 years, prints have become an important part of Armleder’s overall oeuvre, as print projects have often gone on to inspire new bodies of work in other mediums. His work has been associated with art movements from Fluxus to Neo-Geo, this despite openly proclaiming his desire to avoid associating his artistic practice with any type of manifesto, dogma or movement.
