“Günther Förg is a painter who, by means of stringency, reduction, and concentration, strives for a state in which he causes the picture to affect the viewer through colours, forms and structures and allows it to be experienced based on a wealth of references and meanings. His pictorial language has developed out of abstract painting and minimalism; it is limited to selected forms and colours. The identity of his paintings is not created and defined by a motif - Förg does not provide us with an illusion of the visible world, his subject is painting. Despite a laconic and swift gesture, the use of colour is central to his work.” (Bernd Reiß, in: exhib.cat. Günther Förg 1987-2011, Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin 2012, p. 7)
