Overview

Exploring the wide spectrum of artwork created by Gilbert Bretterbauer, this book analyzes the carpets, furniture, lamps, and other objects through which he unites the central aspects of his art: space, color, and abstraction. A carpet crafted by Bretterbauer is not to simply be understood as a decoration; through its intense coloring and sensual material it gains a three-dimensional presence. Bretterbauer's creations do not only prove to be successful in their spatial function but also claim objectivity. They are not only a matter of aesthetic contemplation but provide a tactile experience of the object.
