About Margarete Golz

Born in 1957 in Borken/Westfalen, Germany, Marga grew up in a pretty bourgeois family. She made her way against her parents expectations. She finished university with a higher degree in fine arts. She devoured books from Hermann Hesse, idolized Buddhism, lived in grief for a better world and was disappointed by the lack of creativity in the art lessons at school. Drawing for her has always been a way for retreat while gathering energy to manage conflicts. During a period of social service for the community she found entry in art classes at the University of Kassel. Again, disappointment arose from the rigid way of thinking by the professors. "The best teaching I got from my senior mates", Marga reflectes about her early studies. The heart of her work has always been the oil painting. Marga Golz` early work is closely associated to the magic realism. Achieving the final color through multiple coats of paints according to the old masters is a technique she still applies today. Her paintings on the switch of contemporary issues over times cover the periods from renaissance to modern computerized art. Figures of men and women pregnant with meaning and carefully dissected. Taking her subjects into geometric and multi-faced pieces Marga has devoted herself to the cubism. The compositions of her paintings are frequently based upon real objects, dreams or derived from personal experiences or visions. Sensuality and effectiveness are the drivers for creating scenes of human encounter which should translate into a story or fairy tale. During the process of painting the focus on the final work gets constantly challenged and broken by covering colors with different layers of pigment, changing forms and shapes or moving and mixing of borders and structures. This ends up in specific and unique dynamics and rhythm in each piece of work. Every new object is going through a cycle of spontaneity, simultaneity, manifoldness and poetry of life. This is how Marga makes us aware the uniformity and exchangeability of the world around us.
