The Gottfried Honegger's sculpted work is made up of a range of simple shapes that the artist puts together using a random mathematical process, by computer or by the throw of a dice. The contrast between this randomness and the fine mastery of the materials gives his sculptures a rare elegance and dignity, void of any pathos.
Here, the benches with elements of seats “conversing” are a means for the artist to introduce art into life, and turning the functional act of sitting down into an aesthetic experience. His monumental and monochrome paintings striated with white interlace demonstrate the same method of exploration of shapes and patterns.
