Frank Gerritz

Born 1964 in Bad Oldesloe, Germany

Frank Gerritz is a sculptor. A sculptor, however, who for years has developed his sculptural ideas principally in the form of drawings that nonetheless emanate a markedly space-encompassing energy. Derived from his early floor-sculptures, the artist has established two main series of wall-reliefs: pencil drawings on MDF and oil-stick drawings on anodized aluminum exceptionally minimal in their arrangement.

Alongside these wall-sculptures, several series of drawings on paper, paintick on printed paper as well as monumental wall-drawings have defined the artist’s oeuvre over the past two decades. Equally constructed from a consciously limited geometric vocabulary.

Within the discourses of art history, Frank Gerritz’s works go deeper than the surface, providing a complex weave of the most diverse references and points of view.
