The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

Karl Otto Götz

Expecting a Lightning-Fast Miracle
Karl Otto Götz, born in 1914 in Aachen and one of the most important protagonists of German informal painting, has not confined himself to just one artistic genre throughout the course of his life. In addition to painting, he has also devoted himself to graphic art, sculpture, photography and also to the medium of painting and poetry. The artist’s work shows a constant joy of discovery in displacing the classical principle of form. The spontaneity and speed of the creative process are reflected in the multifaceted variations of dynamic spirals in his brushwork and crystalline squeegee structures. In accordance with Götz’s artistic guiding principle, the works displayed in this exhibition and the accompanying catalogue, including hitherto unknown works spanning his entire creative phase, illustrate the enormous spectrum that the artist has covered in exploring the inexhaustible well of abstract possibilities to constantly create something new.
