As a trained mechanic, Jean Baier developed an artistic
fascination for practical shapes and the aesthetics of
industrial manufacturing. With the spray gun he applied
cellulose paint to sheet metal, aluminum, and synthetic
material. Strict clarity, angular lines, and minimal
chromaticity characterize his three-dimensional works of
art, which also had an impact on the discourse on
Concrete Art. In the sixties and seventies Baier
developed murals for walls and façades. He produced a
metal relief (1963) for the cafeteria at the University of
St. Gallen, designed a wall (1972) for the executive offices
at Novartis, and created works for the Swiss Embassy in
Brasília (1983) and the Varembé swimming pool in
Geneva (1990-91).
