“For me, abstract art today is what one sees, and nothing more” – Günther Förg

“Retrospectively, the reason for the continued importance of Förg’s oeuvre becomes clear. The evolution of his direct, subjective engagement with the aesthetic of the sublime — conducted without fear of stereotypical taboos — oscillates between appropriation and homage, yet Förg does so without any ironic quotations or other such cheap distancing techniques. Instead, he throws mythical ballast overboard and appropriates picture-making strategies in a way that makes them look new.” – Andreas Schlegel on Günther Förg in “Günther Förg”, Frieze Magazine, Spring 2012, pp. 134-135.
