Gerhard Merz, born 1947 in Mammendorf near Munich, Germany, lives and works in Berlin and Pescia, Italy. Merz´ career has been devoted to further developing, refining, and perfecting the major ideas of modernism. Merz decisively points out the difference between “art” and “life”, a mentality opposed to that of young artists throughout the 20th century. Merz´ works are experiments, arenas where he investigates perfection. To achieve this, he incorporates architecture into his work as a standard and a reference of meaning: he calls for a rigorous and exacting formal purity and a high complexity of ideas behind the forms. Merz is a painter, but his “paintings” are artistic interventions in space, composed of monochrome paintings, wall painting, typography, architectural fragments, and light.
