About

Two Figures oil, graphite on linen canvas 40x30 framed. Jurgen Gorg was born in 1951 in​, Dernbach Germany. His formative years were spent in Koblentz, before moving to Maintz to study at the Johannes Guttenberg University. He has happy memories of his student days, particularly of his teacher Saalfield for motivating him to draw with academic precision - a skill and gift his works still possess to this day. Gorg captivates with the line of his drawings. He combines the mastery of the classical line, as found in the Italian Renaissance, with a very modern interpretation and use. The viewer becomes caught in the movement. The melodic flow reminds one of jazz and the improvisational quality of the departure from and returns to a simple melody. Space is explored, filled, and accented ­ all executed with a lyrical, subtle, and delicate fluidity. Most often Görg uses a monochromatic palette. Soft color is applied with graphite in combination with the translucent layers of oil. Shading is subtle - white highlights focus attention, as does the sparing use of bright color. As his mind flows, his hand follows. The human body is the predominant image portrayed by Gorg. His artistic universe consists of lovers, dancers, musicians, and masked personages. Tender, lithe, slim, and youthful, these idealized, loosely rendered figures suggest the timeless and eternal. The focus of his works centers on body language and kinetic movement. By leaving the faces vague, with eyes almost always closed, there is room for dreaming ­ both in the viewer and in the subjects of the painting. This quality of the somewhat indefinite, yet perfect form, creates a romantic aura.
