P288_1526855524_large3 depicts a disassembled 4D hypercube. Pioneer Manfred Mohr developed his artistic vocabulary around the cube's geometry and its structure of 12 lines. The aesthetic reminds of black notes on a music partition, organised around a certain rhythm and logic. In this piece, the mathematical logic governs the visual. The artist calculated and drew his piece on a computer before plotting it on paper. His art departs from an emotional quest of aesthetics and favours the idea that creation should rise from rationality.
