Biography

The independent painter Moritz Götze (*1964) lives and works in Halle, Germany. His work is characterized by contrast and contradiction which he makes into a style principle of his own. It does not describe existing realities, on the contrary it creates new worlds, which carry their own meanings. The art history of the 19th and 20th century is a recurring subject in his work. Stories out of pictures with two binding influences: the gothic plastic and the comic.
