Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency
Stefan Gritsch is a Swiss painter living and working in Lenzburg.
Stefan’s work explores paint as a material. Masses of acrylic paint modelled into new shapes and states serve as the basis for three-dimensional works. In a process characterised by repetition and transfer, Stefan works this body of paint, cutting it, dividing it, covering it with new coats of paint and combining it into changing conglomerates in the form of balls, blocks, slabs and other shapes.
