简介

Emanuel Seitz in Helsinki 2019

Born 1973 in Dingolfing, Germany | Lives and works in Munich, Germany.

 

Emanuel Seitz gives focal emphasis to the basic elements of painting, to form and composition. Although many of his paintings are simple and monochromatic in their vocabulary, they are not Color Field paintings, in his opinion. He sees them more like studies of the synergy between form and spatiality. The artist mixes his pigments to broaden the spectrum of hues at his disposal for bringing out the essence of form with maximal intensity.

 

Emanuel Seitz studied under Günther Förg at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts from 1996 to 2002. He has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany and elsewhere throughout Europe. He is represented in major collections including the Lenbachhaus and the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich.
