Background Information about Gerhard Mantz
Mantz’s interpretations of landscape subjects do not necessarily aim to represent a geographical locale but rather to conjure a metaphor for a psychological state. The lush scenes are sculpted to evoke feelings and moods; the viewer enters the visual environment with immediate emotional responses. At first glance the images appear realistic, in some cases even photographic, with inviting naturalistic details that lure and seduce. But, upon closer inspection, the seemingly realistic details shift to reveal a strange virtual realm more closely associated with an interior “reality” than with the exterior world.
Gerhard Mantz was born in 1950 in Neu Ulm, Germany and currently lives and works in Berlin. His work has been shown extensively in Germany and Europe since the early 1980s and today enjoys an international reputation. Mantz’s digital art was included in the group show "Minus Space" at New York’s PS1 Contemporary Art Center / MoMA (October 19, 2008 - January 26, 2009).
