Tomas Rajlich is internationally recognized as a major figure in European painting. 
His monochromatic canvases based on the Minimalist grid are the result of meticulous research on the fundamental elements of painting. 
In the 100 small-scale paintings brought together in this booklet, he explores the combination of the impersonal, the gestural and the creative force of light; they are variations on the intensity, luminosity and facture of the paint, while clearly remaining a factual painting. 
Emerging in the early 1970s, he is often associated with Minimalism and Fundamental Painting – a term coined by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam in 1975. 
The current includes Robert Ryman, Robert Mangold, Agnes Martin, and the early years of Brice Marden and Gerhard Richter. An artist of uncompromising integrity, he maintains a position as one of the most significant living postwar and contemporary painters of his generation. 
His works have been the subject of major retrospectives and included in the collections of renowned museums worldwide, such as the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
