Refined and warm, Dominique Lutringer’s works employ a unique fusion of Japanese aesthetics and minimalism. 

A rhythm of recurring lines and patterns, coupled with profound textures and the counterplay of monochrome and restrained colors, are notable characteristics of his oeuvre. 

Although photographs cannot convey the impact of the originals, viewers experiencing the pieces firsthand will feel the serenity and power of the works.

Art critique

Dominique Lutringer’s work can be understood as metaphors of culture and nature. His simple and refined artworks, composed of straight lines and multiple layers of delicate texture, are characterized by the quiet rhythms and the restrained use of colors, which demonstrate his unique perspective on Japanese aesthetics.The artworks emphasize the singular repetition of lines and patterns, which embodies the aesthetic encounters between the viewers and the artworks.The artist seeks to perfect the idea of simplicity and to eliminate the unnecessary, to return to the essence of things.
