Heimo Zobernig was born in 1958, in Austria. He started out in the late 1970s as a stage designer and performer. By the mid-1980s he was painting abstract images and seeking ways to interpret geometric mechanisms and question the basic conditions that frame art. In 2000 Zobernig began an intensive production of grid paintings, in a rather concentrated and sustained way, which he has continued to the present day. This way Zobernig allows himself to continue the great modernist project as in a perpetually unfinished state.
