Further Biographical Context for Frans Hildebrand
Frans Hildebrand was born in 1956 and was predominantly inspired by the 1970s growing up. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and development in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the dominant stresses of the preceding decade. Conceptual art developed as a key movement, a partial evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the expansive outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and engaging with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal considerations, creating mysterious and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain prominence for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years before, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly respected figures worldwide. New York maintained an influential position in the international art world, ensuring that international artists continued to gravitate to the galleries, bars and downtown scene there. n Japan and Korea, artists associated with the Mono-Ha movement explored on encounters between natural and industrial materials such as stone, glass, cotton, sponge, wood, oil and water, arranging them in mostly unaltered, ephemeral conditions. The works focused on the interplay between these various elements and the surrounding space, and had a strong interest in the European ideas of phenomenology.
