Christian Hetzel Paintings Colour Field

Christian Hetzel’s paintings take up the mantle left by the great colour field painters such as Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman who freed colour from objective context and made it the very subject of their work.

These are strong physical paintings that demand much from you, force their way into your eye line, make you look deep into their layers of colour and textures.

Inspired by abstract expressionism as well as the works of Gerhard Richter, Robert Rauschenberg, Pierre Soulages and Nicolas de Staël, Hetzel’s paintings focus on texture and colour while his structures and ideas are derived from the world about him. Each composition a further study, exploration of both the natural nd urban environment.
