||1936 born in Celle. As a boy he was fascinated by the
natural sciences as much as by music and the other Fine Arts. He often visited museums and
galleries and was especially impressed in the bold colours of Modern Art.
||He took lessons in painting and drawing, determined to discover the secrets inherent
in colour. It is therefore hardly surprising that as an adult he first worked in, and
later became a manager in various paint factories.
||In 1977 he founded his own Colour Laboratory, developing, analysing and
experimenting with thousands of colours, at the same time pursuing his own art into the
early hours of the next morning.
||As a member of the "Culture Workshop Trier", Hans-Gerd Doneck has been
regularly exhibiting his constructivistic paintings since 1988, in Germany as well as abroad.
||Exhibitions in Germany. Donecks works have been acquired by the "State Gallery
of Witebsk", the city of the Russian constructivistic Painters Malewitsch, Puni &
|About the artist
Oil painting is the consistent conversion of feelings, passions and
life-experiences into colour. Apart from symbolic renderings of flowers, Doneck most often
paints three-dimensional colour forms which merge into each other and are set apart from a
white background. Using but a few basic colours he can mix an entire palette of pastel
hues as delicate as a Japanese garden in Springtime, or deep and intensive colours that
possess the explosive strength and violence of the dawning of creation. Sometimes he
paints white structures sparsely differentiated with areas of colour - paintings of
timeless aesthetic appeal. Doneck, with his recognisable style, geometric forms and
unusual colour combinations is considered to be the founder of "Flex-Art". His
progressive, cosmopolitan works can be found in companies and private collections.
