Olle Bonniér (born 1925)
Olle Bonniér belongs to a group of artists of concrete art, ”The Concretians” and he explored the principles of Concretism in theory as well as in his art. At the beginning of his career he used very bright and strong colours, but later he changed to contrasting colours, often black and white.
Bonniér’s expression was non-figurative and he was interested in the dynamics of colours and forms. His sculptures in Plexi-glass and metal were produced as pure objects, concrete but non-representing.
Olle Bonniér contributed with two patterns to ”Signed Textile”: ”Positive – Negative” and the pattern ”Raxt”, which has been described as follows: ”This composition sounds what it looks like: ”Raxt” – the sound of the jet-planes in black thunderbolts.” ”Raxt” is printed here on a strongly bleached cotton-canvas in black, grey and light beige.
