PHILIPP MORITZ

PHILIPP MORITZ was born in Munich. 

Philipp Karl Moritz’s paintings reveal a persistent, silent struggle between the abstract and the figurative. In his monochrome and grid-like works, awkward still lifes manifest on the picture plane. These structures are difficult to locate. Often sat on a table’s edge or an even steathilier vessel, they intrude on to the foreground. The paintings have a lustrous, leathery quality with pulsating, uneven surfaces. The artist achieves this by regularly polishing the still-moist top layers of oil, a testament to his ritualistic approach to making. Moritz has had solo shows in Berlin, Munich and Stuttgart.
