About

Günther Förg was one of the most prominent German artists of his generation. Backed by an impressive output, he has had exhibitions at art museums across Europe. Günther Förg launched his art career in the 1970s with a series of monochrome paintings. Although he has since worked in a variety of materials and techniques, including sclpture, ceramics and photography, monochromatic painting remains his artistic backbone to which his various bodies of work all adhere. In his architectural photographs he nurtured an aesthetic inspired by Bauhaus while his paintings reflect on art in general and often American abstract expressionsm in particular. In Denmark, Förg's work may be viewed at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, the National Museum of Art, ARoS Museum of Art and Arken Museum of Modern Art.
