Works of Günther Förg
Because monochromatic color fields are an important aspect of Günther Förg’s work, it seems natural to consider him a minimalist painter. But examination of the range of his work demonstrates Förg’s dual purposes. His mimicry of minimalism is indeed an homage, but it also strives to highlight the failure of modernist ideals.
