Günter Tuzina / Bio
The very refined drawings and paintings by Günter Tuzina show the inheritance of the minimalist idiom of the sixties and seventies. His rectangled drawings in mostly dark blue, red and green colors look like windows. They are cut by expressive horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines. These lines and angles are not quite perfect, which give them an emotional significance. It contrasts sharply with the anonymous, industrial perfection of Minimal Art.
Günter Tuzina, born in 1951 in Hamburg (DE), lives and works in Cologne. In 2002 he had an overview of his oeuvre in the Gemeentemuseum The Hague, on which occasion also a catalog had been published. His works have been internationally shown and collected by several museum and public collections such as the Gemeentemuseum The Hague and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Since 1999 he showed regularly at Slewe Gallery. In 2011 he had a presentation at project space of the Gemeentemusuem The Hague.
