Viewing Günther Förg: Tupfenbilder

A prolific painter, sculptor, graphic designer and photographer, Günther Förg was one of the leading figures of postwar abstraction. In his highly conceptual practice, he explored the materiality of making and what art critic Kirsty Bell has described as ‘the visual field’.

This exhibition contains Förg’s Spot Paintings, the artist’s final series made between 2005 and 2010. Partially influenced by photographs of Francis Bacon’s studio — which was covered in colourful blotches of excess paint — they feature expressive, dynamic brushstrokes and dabs of vibrant colour.

In these works, the brushstroke itself is the main protagonist. Across the variations of paintings on display, you’ll see contrasting shades of greens, pinks, reds, browns and yellows against backgrounds of cool and pastel hues. This body of work beautifully celebrates the act of painting and is quite simply a delight to behold.
