Lenz Geerk Biography

Lenz Geerk creates psychologically charged paintings that are removed from any specific time or place. Emphasising his subjects in such a way as to draw out the hidden emotions of the human psyche, Geerk depicts people at the threshold of excitation and in the throes of exploration. With postures and gestures a fiction of representation, Geerk imagines how a certain fragile moment, derived from neither model nor photograph, can instead be expressed through atmosphere and body language. The nearly monochromatic palettes, only occasionally warmed by other colours, adds to the aura of emotional tension.
