Manfred Mohr

Manfred Mohr: p702a, 2000

Mohr started as a jazz musician. He began using the computer (1969) because of his growing interest in creating an algorithmic art. His early computer works are algorithmic and based on his former drawings with a strong attitude on rhythm and repetition.
Manfred Mohr is dealing for more than 30 years with the subject of a cube which he transfers in multiple dimensions. New and never returning constellations arise by the rotation of the cubes as well as by the incidentally fragmentary appearance of their lines. He confronts with the impossibleness of showing multi-dimensionality on a two-dimensional media and creates artworks that are aesthetically very convincing despite of his stringent conceptual approach. Due to the clarity of his colours and abstractions as well as by his affection to music one feels reminded of the works of Wassily Kandinsky.
