JÖRG GUYER

Portal of Enigma
May 19 – June 9, 2015
Reception: Thursday, May 21, 2015 6-8 PM

Before he began painting, Jörg Guyer worked as a technical draftsman at his father’s engineering firm. This influence can be seen today in Guyer’s canvases, which are filled with detailed abstract geometry. Each painting embraces a minimal palette, playing on the recognition of primary colors. Jumping out against the often single or dual-colored backgrounds, his subjects have bold outlines that teeter between abstract and recognizable forms of landscapes, animals, and people. For Guyer, this variety of forms symbolizes the strengths and weaknesses of humanity.

Guyer's paintings are paradoxically both simplistic and complex, resembling the plotted compositions of coloring books while maintaining a sophisticated maturity. Shadows, limbs, and fabric catch the eye, inviting the viewer to share in the artist's whimsy. The bright hues of Guyer's acrylic and oil evoke the natural elements – fire, water, air, and earth – or, rather, how they might appear in dreams. 

Guyer lives and works in Black Forest, Germany. His body of work strives toward connecting the quotidian within a storytelling environment.
