It’s Day 280 and I enjoyed today’s painting. The challenging part was finding an extensive biography of the artist! Join me in honoring Lenz Klotz today.
Lenz Klotz (* 1925 in Chur ) is a Swiss artist .
After receiving the teacher diploma of the cantonal teacher’s college in 1945, he ordered Churchill in the years 1945-1950 the graphical estate of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner.
From 1951 to 1989 he was a specialist teacher at the School of Applied Art Basel (now Basel
School of Design). To his seventieth birthday two exhibitions were in 1995 in the Kunsthalle Basel and the Basel Art Museum organized.
Biography above is from the German wikipedia.
Inspired by Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee, Lenz Klotz developed a unique visual language of intersecting and oscillating lines, forming two-dimensional geometric figures reminiscent of calligraphy, musical scores, and other lyrical forms of notation.
As invested in drawing, etching, and lithography as in painting, Klotz relied on both line and vivid color, often simultaneously.
Although purely abstract, his work nonetheless indicates human narratives and
experiences, both in its visual recalling of man-made systems and symbols and with its playful titles like Not only for illiterates (1961) or That’s Enough (2001).
