Lenz Geerk “Moonpaintings”
Lenz Geerk explores intimate, alienated worlds inhabited by pensive, dreamy figures. Depicting timeless melancholic environments, Geerk suspends and wraps the viewer in the mysterious and emotional intensity of his paintings.
At times on their own, at times together, Geerk’s figures permeate a sense of nostalgia, estrangement and emotional turmoil. The androgynous and anonymous faces depicted by the artist effortlessly portray a humanity that is psychologically exposed. Willingly blurring skin colours and features, the artist draws relatable figures, establishing a direct relationship with the viewer. Moving sensuously yet wildly on the canvas, the characters exude a contemporary ennui that materialises in a muted colour palette.
