“My memories, thoughts, stories and dreams become shadowy figures, ambiguous shapes, archaic lines and touching color compositions. Again and again with the deep desire to create a unique, beautiful masterpiece” (Heinz Marzohl, May 2022).

For 34 years, Heinz Marzohl had a renowned company in Switzerland for lettering technology, digital printing and graphic design with more than 30 employees. In 2007, he handed over the company to his two daughters. In his professional activity, he designed countless brand logos, lettering concepts for shopping centers and art graphics for industrial buildings. His profound knowledge of graphic design, typography, reprography, serigraphy, materials – and color theory – was a valuable springboard for him to enter the world of art painting. And yet, Heinz Marzohl entered a world that was new to him. If writings and writing characters were mostly technical, geometric constructions, now in painting, emotions and feelings should be represented with lively, touching lines and shapes.

The search for inspiring examples led to works by Kandinsky, Marc, Jawlenski, Klee and Macke, who had created groundbreaking works of art in the artistic group ‘Der Blaue Reiter’ in the early twentieth century. The aim was not to copy these works: the key was to fathom the thinking and feeling of these artists that had led to these great paintings. Kandinsky and Klee were both teachers at the German Bauhaus, taught master classes, and wrote down their teaching methods in books. Intensive study of these writings opened up new horizons for Heinz Marzohl. Another important source of inspiration was the intensive study of the fascinating cave paintings of our ancestors. Even these primitive people could deep in their caves with the flickering fire paint only according to memories. Already, 30.000 years ago, a spiritual transformation of what has been seen was the basis for the amazing drawings.

The more Heinz Marzohl dealt with art, the more he was fascinated by the spiritual behind art, the touching, the mysterious, the soulful. Instead of photorealistic works, the desire for abstract images of memories in form of lines, shapes and colors came. In the following years, he has created countless sketches and color studies as the basis for painting pictures.

From 1996, Heinz Marzohl then painted several touching, colorful pictures, which had their origin in memories of impressive places or experiences. It seemed as if the spiritual transformation of the experience would give the images a mysterious charisma. It is above all key works such as “Gspon” “Humbly, meekly, haughty”, or “Amrum”, which with their impressive Picture stories and magnificent color chords touch the soul. Newer works such as “Color Sound Alsace” or “Salt of the Camargue” have also been created in the same tradition. More will follow.
