| Photographic realism in between perfection and abstraction
Franz Gertsch (*1930 in Mörigen) became internationally known for his large, hyperrealist paintings, and is one of the most prominent Swiss artists of our time. His major motifs are figures and landscapes, which he translates to canvas in his characteristically elaborate, time-consuming process. The artist’s production process can take months, even years, since he works without any kind of reproduction technology. Employing a kind of intaglio technique, he transforms his source material into various media, such as woodcuts, prints, and paintings. In contrast to the hyperrealist paintings, the prints have an abstract, alien look. Through exemplary works whose technical perfection goes far beyond photorealism, the catalogue provides extensive insight into the artist’s world. Exhibition schedule: Museum Frieder Burda, Baden-Baden, October 26, 2013–February 16, 2014
