Künstler*innen "Moritz Green"

Moritz Green is a German artist. He started painting graffiti at the age of 12 and has never stopped since. He graduated in Fine Arts in Hamburg, where he lives and works. His works have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Green's work deal with the obliqueness and oddity of living in modern times as a human being on a blue sphere flying through the cosmos at 107,000 km/h.

Moritz Green's favorite reading during his younger years was the atlas. Maps of the solar system, the globe and its meridian grid, city and subway maps plus the colorful explanatory legends are still fascinating him. The collected impressions of graphic symbols and visualizations of underlying structures and systems are the unifying element in Moritz Green's abstract formal language. In his artwork, figurative attributions can often be found, resulting from the examination of the subject matter.

"In the face of the universe, even man's gigantomania is relative. I am concerned with one's positioning on the ellipse of repitition and the associated view of the world and things in a astronomical, geographical as well as an aesthetic context." says Green. "Like the rising and setting of the sun, contrasts become apparent or vanishingly small: A sensitive organic life form like man placed in a self-made, hostile environment of hard materials like the city; the unimaginable dimension of space vs. the depth of oneself; our chronology compared to the timeline of evolutionary history. The longer one devotes oneself to the complex constellations and contrasts of the universal existence the more oblique and odd the perspective on all areas of life in the here and now becomes. One can also take it with a sense humor. In the end, it's all a matter of perspective."

By transforming thoughts into an abstract, usually hard-edged but also often soft geometric language of forms with the means of painting, printmaking and/or installation, Green aims to influence the viewer's perspective and create associative spaces. An often pastel coloring combined with a few saturated hues transports and emphasizes the emotions that underlie the world of thought of his works.
