Jurgen Gorg

Gorg's work is much sought after.  His technical accomplishment and his ability to reproduce the moving figure so sensitively make his work irresistible to his many collectors.  He has a true and original talent utilising traditional methods of printmaking as well as painting, drawing and sculpture.

Born in Dermbach in West Germany in 1951 his formative years were spent in Koblenz before moving to Mainz to study at the Johannes Guttenberg University for four years.  Gorg has happy memories of his student days and in particular of his teacher Saalfield who motivated him to draw with academic precision a skill which in no small way contributes to the quality of his work today.

Gorg began his professional career in 1977 as a painter and printmaker.  There is a strong tradition in Germany for figurative art with erotic overtones and Gorg's work forms part of a new generation of artists in this area with fresh interpretations of the theme.  Gorg's impact on the European art scene has been little short of sensational.
