Karlheinz Bux – über Linie
The dominant artistic medium in the works of Karlheinz Bux is the line. In his pencil graphics on satined white glass and in the photo-based works on film, complex and varyingly dense line structures create and interpret the object depicted. Lines as edges and folds determine the vertically aligned sculptures, which at the same time convey unity and openness, momentum and tranquillity. The catalogue book documents large-sized works of the artist in the gallery rooms of the town Tuttlingen and presents further works in prestigious illustrations. Texts by Dr. Christine Reeh-Peters and Michael Hübl, as well as an interview with the artist by Carmela Thiele complement the 96-pages publication.
Karlheinz Bux was born in Ulm in 1952 and studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe between 1972 and 1978. He realised several Art in Construction projects, such as in Bad Saulgau, Karlsruhe, Radolfzell and Villingen-Schwenningen. His work was awarded repeatedly; different scholarships took him to Ahrenshoop, Basel and Paris. Several museum- and private collections include his works, such as the State Art Gallery Karlsruhe, the museum Ulm and the collections of Rüdiger Hurrle and Reinhold Würth.
