Born in 1951 in Dernbach, Germany, Jurgen Gorg has established himself as a master artist. He studied visual arts in Koblenz, Germany and at the Johannes-Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany.
Jurgen Gorg captivates us with the lines of his drawings and paintings. The artist combines the mastery of classic line as found in the Italian Renaissance with a modern interpretation. His hand-colored etchings and lithographs reflect his innate talent and imagination.
The human body is the predominant image portrayed by Gorg. His artistic universe consists of lovers, dancers, musicians, and masked personages. The loosely rendered figures suggest they are timeless and eternal. Gorg focuses on the body language and kinetic movement, by leaving the faces vague, with eyes almost always closed, there is room for dreaming. The quality is somewhat indefinite and yet perfect form creates a romantic aura. An elusive quality is cultivated by Gorg who feels that "Something should always remain open."
Gorg’s work is mysterious enough to be fully understood only in the viewer’s imagination and is caught in the romantic movement of the artwork. The melodic flow reminds us of smooth jazz. Space is explored, filled and accented - all executed with a lyrical, subtle, and delicate fluidity, as his mind flows, his hand flows. Like a fine musician, Gorg avoids strong color and stark contrast in his work because he believes this breaks the flow of his lyrical drawings and paintings.
