After a short period of figurative work, Morellet turned to abstraction in 1950 adopting a pictorial language of simple geometric forms: lines, squares and triangles assembled into two-dimensional compositions. In 1961, he was one of the founders of the Groupe de Recherche d'Art Visuel (GRAV) in Paris. From that time on Fran�ois Morellet has been using systems to achieve the utmost of objectivity: "For me systems are a kind of rules to the game, concise and predominating the work, its development and realization. I've chosen this expression, because it describes an attitude that I like very much, that of artists not identifying themselves with what they're making [...]. A system permits one to diminish the number of subjective decisions and let the work evolve itself towards the spectator, so to say." For more information, please consult wikipedia (�ois_Morellet)
