About the Artist

Gerard Glotz
Gerard Glotz

I started to draw pictures from the children’s’ bible and pictures of saints at the age of four. I continued drawing as a teenager and in high school – by copying pictures as well as drawing my own interpretation of the pictures of the Old Masters. I also practiced the styles of the different “isms” of the 20th century like Cubism, Surrealism, Impressionism, Expressionism, Futurism, etc.

“Fata Morgana”, White / Black Pencil on Gray Cardboard, 19.7” X 27.6”

I didn’t get stuck in the abstract and informal art – there was no space for me as a story-teller. I wanted to tell about or interpret the mythology of the Greek and Romans, about scenes of the bible, of the “Nibelungenlied”, of poems and novels. Furthermore, I wanted to capture topics of everyday life as well as integrate landscape, space, nature, and people into my design. All this I only could accomplish in the style of the New Realism, in the style of my Realism, with my own individual style. Being an autodidact, I found my USP in this style.”
