Centmayers' play of colours

Centmayers’ Farbenspiel

Marcus Centmayer was born in 1961. The trained stonemason studied art and sculpture at the Art Academy in Karlsruhe from 1986 to 1991. As a master student of Prof. Hiromi Akiyama, he subsequently developed his works of color field painting.

Centmayer received a lot of attention through sculptures in public spaces (including the memorial to civilian victims of bombings on Worms). He likes to use corrugated cardboard boxes as a medium. Labyrinths, chaos, order, structure, color and line are the recurring themes and at the same time visual means. The works are based on experimentation and discovery, not on calculation. The intuitively controlled design process of his sculptures can also be found in his paintings.

Some of his works are part of private and public collections. In addition to numerous exhibitions, many works were shown in 2022/23 as part of the Flux4Art art in Rhineland-Palatinate.

Color field painting is more than just a brushstroke on a canvas - it is an artistic revolution that pushes the boundaries of traditional art forms. This fascinating genre focuses on color, and through it a world of emotion, mood and depth is created.

A master of color field painting has mastered the art of presenting color in its purest form, without the distraction of details or contours. The canvas becomes an ocean of color in which the viewer can immerse themselves and feel the essence of each nuance. Each brushstroke is an expression of feeling and intention, each hue a message that speaks without words.
