Leonhard Hurzlmeier - Biography

Leonhard Hurzlmeier (*1983 in Starnberg) explores the world of geometry in his works. In vivid but not garish colours he paints lines, triangles, rectangles and trapeze, which converge and coincide, creating works of playful ornamentation. In his more recent works, Leonhard Hurzlmeier is drawing closer to a more figurative style. However, without neglecting his geometric approach.

Leonhard Hurzlmeier's canvaces bear visible traces of bygone times

By approaching the paintings of Hurzlmeier, the viewer realizes, that the supposedly even canvases feature a very detailed structure. The artist accentuates the ‘scars’ of the entire painting process and thereby creating an interesting contrast between the calculated motive and the organic feeling of the paintings. Hurzlmeier paints on already used canvases, whose surfaces he completely repaints, however, he allows the ‘old’ texture to shine through and by doing so, his works become immanent documents of time.
