About the Author:
The constructivist painter and author Hans Jörg Glattfelder was born 1939 in Zurich .
In the beginning he was influenced by the “concrete art of Zurich”, but soon he took his own
way: in the late sixties he inquired into the possibility
of creating art work by the means of anonymous, industrial production (“pyramid reliefs”); in the seventies he introduced
the topic of the “non-euclidean” geometry as a base for his artistic production (“non-euclidean metaphors”).
In many articles, interviews and theoretical contributions Hans J. Glattfelder speaks up
for an exercise of art based on rational inventiveness (“meta-rationalism” 1983) and he asks for an interdisciplinary
opening and communication between the many expressions
of “constructivism” in science and art (“methodical constructivism”).
From 1961 – 1997 Glattfelder lived in Italy , since 1998 in Paris .
