Frank Gerritz

Born 1964 in Hamburg, Germany
Lives and works in Hamburg

Dark* | Light | Space IV (XS), 2013

Paint stick on cardboard, on DIBOND aluminium, 2-part
27 x 19 cm each

The working and designing of surfaces and the experimental use of various materials are at the heart of Frank Gerritz's artistic oeuvre. With pencil and black paint stick, a wax oil stick, Gerritz "works" his image media, preferably MDF or aluminium. For the two-part work from the "Dark | Light | Space" series, Gerritz also ventures into applying white paint stick on rectangular cardboard with the aid of a spatula. Here, he meticulously concentrates several layers of paint, creating monochrome, strictly geometric surfaces of surprising depth and dynamics that enter into dialogue with the light falling on them and the surrounding space.
