    Information

    According to the magazine provocateur of July 2012, Markus Bacher’s paintings are “vivid, colourful, informel and above all, massive”. And a short interview starts the ball rolling with reference to the marketability of Bacher’s paintings. One thinks of banking institutions, spacious foyers and lofts, in which the paintings might hang with great effect. The attribute informel shows itself here from its best side. Almost as though the typically informel Fifties had actually not undergone a conceptual hiatus and merely continued uninterrupted in the painting of the 1980s and beyond to the present – as it were, Informel as an established value or entity that transcends a specific temporal context, rather like Meissen porcelain or Chanel perfume. Be that as it may, does Bacher’s seemingly abstract painting actually have the qualities of Art Informel? Is it not more gesturally abstract or abstractly expressive or, indeed, perhaps not really abstract at all?
