About the artist

Günther Förg

Daring and explorative, German artist Günther Förg (1952-2013) developed his conceptual practice as a reaction against the figuration in art that was widespread across Germany during the 1980s. His early career began at The Academy of Fine Art Munich where he developed a practice grounded in predominantly gray and black monochromes. These “Gitter” paintings were Förg’s first foray into what would become a lifelong investigation into conceptualism. In addition to his paintings, Förg is known for his experimentation with photography in the 1980s as he photographed culturally and politically significant buildings around the world. He left painting altogether for a few years, taking up photography as a reaction against the painting medium. 


Förg experimented with materials all his life, not just in painting but in sculpture as well. The 21st century saw brighter colors and gridlike paintings for the artist. He has exhibited around the globe, and his work continues to be shown after his death in 2013. Hauser and Wirth in Los Angeles put on their first solo exhibition of Förg’s work in September of 2021, demonstrating the reach and influence the artist continues to have in the art world.
