Franziska Klotz’s increasingly abstract paintings still suggest landscapes, scenes, or objects that are derived from photographs or reports she has seen or read about.

Often these refer to cataclysmic events, man-made and natural: the meteor impact and vast explosion in Tunguska, Siberia in 1908, the tsumani and related nuclear power plant disaster in Fukushima, Japan in 2011, public responses of sympathy to the horror of the terrorist massacres in Paris in November 2015, or to a dark, numinous forest where many people go to commit suicide. The earth, she implies, never forgets, but the scale and energy of the emotions communicated through her paintings suggest that it may have a forgiving nature. (David Elliott)

Franziska Klotz’s ideas of images always contain a kernel of reality. Yet she strongly opposes the notion of painting as something that merely illustrates or mirrors lived experience or the visible world. Her works rather oscillate between objective description and the dissolution of the object into visual stimuli. Her practice is driven by the question as to what a committed and timely form of painting may look like in the 21st century.
