Taste- signed limited edition etching by figurative artist Jurgen Gorg. 4 Colours.
About the Artist
Born in Dermbach in West Germany in 1951 his formative years were spent in Koblenz before moving to Mainz to study at the Johannes Guttenberg University for four years. Gorg has happy memories of his student days and in particular of his teacher Saalfield who motivated him to draw with academic precision a skill which in no small way contributes to the quality of his work today. Gorg began his professional career in 1977 as a painter and printmaker and in 1980 he was awarded a special prize by the district of Rheinland Pfalz. His first sculpture was completed in 1990. There is a strong tradition in Germany for figurative art with erotic overtones and J's work forms part of a new generation of artists in this area with fresh interpretations of the theme. In the forward of J's latest book he describes his subject matter as: ".the human body; it is the body of the young slim beautiful person. The face remains vague the gestures are those of free motion. Everything concentrates on the body language and the erotic radiation of the figures". His artistic universe consists of lovers dancers musicians and masked personages. Tender lithe slim and young these idealised loosely rendered figures suggest the timeless and eternal. An elusive quality is cultivated by Gorg who feels that something should always be left open. With his paintings J often uses a monochromatic palate. Soft colour is applied with graphite in combination with translucent layers of oil paint. Shading is subtle white highlights focus attention as does the sparing use of bright colour. G's impact on the European art scene has been little short of sensational. Still only in his early 40's he has emerged as a true and original talent utilising both traditional methods of printmaking as well as painting drawing and sculpture. His work is now much sought after. His technical accomplishment and his ability to reproduce the moving figure so sensitively make his work irresistible to his many collectors.
