Karl Otto Götz
About the object
Karl Otto Götz places great importance to the factor of time when working on his abstract paintings. First, he applies a wet, dark colour or a »Bildfaktur« or visual composition (Götz). The eruptive twists and streaks are made in just a few seconds by using a rubber squeegee on the wet paint. With an empty brush, he finally creates transitions between the dark and light sections. The speed of this painting process reduces the artist's control to a minimum. Thus, fifteen to twenty works arise that are subsequently discarded until the final version emerges.
