François Morellet


centre pompidou

FRANÇOIS MORELLET was born in Cholet (France) in 1926. Morellet began to interest himself in geometrical abstract forms (usually uniform structures), towards 1950. His initial research led him to mostly two-tone surfaces and, in 1956, to the first superimposed patterns, painted or metallic, determining retinal effects of alteration. In 1960, in Paris, he was a founding-member of GRAV (Groupe de Recherche d'Art Visuelle) and his interest centered on kinetic perception investigated by means of geometrical lattices or grids, usually very fine, with the purpose of determining vibrant chromatic surfaces and new graduations of color depending on the intensity and quality of the rhythms of perception.
