Karl Godeg’s golden paintings are highly spiritual. Godeg uses gold, like other contemporary painters, but in a very personal fashion. After discovering Surrealism after World War II, the painter learned to capture invisible forces, some dictated by his subconscious, others external.
His rigorous questioning of pictorial techniques as well as of the lights and colors of the sky, earth and minerals, endow his work with an abstract, metaphysical power. The paintings shown here are certainly the high point of a body of work that must be considered a major, original contribution to Lyrical Abstraction.
Karl Godeg is represented by the Alain Margaron gallery since 2000.
