Jean-Luc Manz

Born 1952 in Neuchâtel, Jean-Luc Manz lives and works in Lausanne. His paintings, which he has been making since 1977, could be described as geometric abstractions. However, they share very little with the Swiss Concrete art tradition. They refer instead to the practices of John M Armleder and Helmut Federle. Their geometric vocabulary is infused with expressive stances and appropriation, as if they wanted to recreate, through the act of painting, a relationship with the world.
