John Würtz works with painting as painting. it is the state of absorption, the development and examination of the picture plane by means of successive layers of over-painting that create the totally unique structure of the paintings. the continuous process of destruction and rebuilding instils a sense in the beholder of a constantly changing space and composition.
the artistic means employed by John Würtz in his paintings are both highly complex and very simple. the paintings are created using a palette of colours which allows the artist to build up layer upon layer of paint to achieve exactly those colours that best capture the effects of light.
the palette of luminous colours of textural, ethereal appearance makes the paintings very intense and insistent.
