For this luxurious artist's book (transparent cover and pages, leaflets, inserted pages), Gerhard Merz employs the notion of emptiness to evolve into an experiential reflection, as his allusive paintings and architecture are augmented by fragments of text.
Born in 1947, Munich, the artist lives and works in Berlin and Pescia, Italy.
Since the late 60s, Gerhard Merz has been developing a concept of painting that is strongly influenced by Formalism and architectural Modernism - a concept he refers to as "archi-painting."
