Über das Werk
Ulrich Erben rose to fame in the late 1960s and early 1970s by virtue of his white paintings. Bucking the prevailing artistic trends of the time, such as Pop-Art, Concept and Minimal art, Erben developed his own distinctive style of painting. During this period, his works were executed in various gradations and nuances of white, which he applied on both paper and canvas with clearly defined or overlapping right-angles and rectangles.
