Michael Gloeckner’s colourful portfolio translates how this artistic and analytical mind responded to the visual world. Repeated patterns and shapes create an almost synesthetic impression of sensory experience. Often Gloeckner’s works are hypnotic patchworks, either reflecting the moon and sky, or aspects of rural and urban landscapes.

With this in mind, Pale Morning could be showing us a fading moon amidst a waking urban environment like New York. The night-time neon lights are reducing in glare against the ‘pale’ illumination of the city as day breaks. Just as his abstract angular forms overlap, so too does this moment between night and day, peaceful and busy.

Biography

Michael Gloeckner was born Michiel in Germany, 1915. He went on to live in New York City under the threat of World War II, and also had a home and studio in West Cornwall, Connecticut.

Prior to this, he painted under Otto Dix (1891-1969) at the Royal Academy of Dresden, and was greatly influenced by Paul Klee (1879-1940) for his employment of expressionism, cubism, and surrealism. Gloeckner went on to reflect this influence, as well as his original study of mathematics (taken with art history at the University of Dresden), in his geometric landscapes and cityscapes.

His colourful portfolio translates how this artistic and analytical mind responded to the visual world. Repeated patterns and shapes create an almost synesthetic impression of sensory experience. Often Gloeckner’s works are hypnotic patchworks, either reflecting the moon and sky, or aspects of rural and urban landscapes.

He exhibited his lively and rhythmic artworks across Dresden, Munich, Berlin, Geneva, Paris, New York, Philadelphia and Hartford. He settled in Connecticut but maintained a studio in New York in his later life; also travelling to and painting from visions of Haiti.
