Christian Megert, born in 1936 in Bern, is regarded as a representativ of Informal Art, which is also described as art informel. Expressive strength, the irrational element, and glorification of the "simple" values make up his artworks. However, it is soon revealed to the beholder that the artist's work is nourished by other sources than pure Informal Art. He turns to abstract art, which in turn sets him apart of from the irrational current of the informal oevre of the likes of Jean Fautrier or Jean Dubuffet and from the dogma of topology. Strict regularity and order lend his works something meditative and concentrated. Every form of the desperate dynamism inherent in them and even spontaneous projections of his "gesture" were neglected in favor of a linear and rigid structure of forms. This approach stands in contrast to the romantically tinged Informal Art or to the compulsion for aesthetics.
