Works

Statement

Even among an extraordinary generation of figurative painters, Marwitz stands out for his distinctive, challenging visual idiom. Elegiac, myth-laden motifs, often borrowed from Greco-Roman funerary reliefs, stage a disturbing feast of phisicality. The Brussels based artist uses a caustic palette and a painting style that combines old techniques with contemporary appeal.
