About this Artwork
"Monophthong: A vowel that has a single perceived auditory quality" (The Oxford Dictionaries)
The first of the Monophthong series originated from a flawed "Yappanoise" painting that Harald Kröner cut apart and which became an interesting source for new works.
Whilst the material used for each work of the series can be broad, : oil, ink, colour spray, enamel, nail varnish, stains, etc, they all have in common their shape (squares), their relatively small size (30 to 35 cm), and their composition.
As often with Kröners work, poetry and beauty emerge from the subtle combination of a relatively rigid framework (here, the vertical and horizontal grey lines), with more random and lively colour marks.
This work is delivered framed by the artist (40x40 cm)
