Gabriel Braun’s oeuvre can be described as simple – in the best sense of the word. At first glance, it seems to consist solely of these elements: form, colour and material. And this places it, without any doubt, in line with the great simplifiers of art history, while, at the same time, setting it apart in one specific regard: for in Gabriel Braun’s work the artist’s hand is nowhere to be seen. Hence, for example, the motifs of his wood engravings are composed of clearly defined surfaces, which, however, unfold their sensuality through his printing technique – involving abrasion – and the resulting emphasis on the wood grain. The strictness of the geometry is additionally refracted by the contradictory character of the forms and colours used.
