Katol

With his pictures, Guido Katol (born 1962) takes up a fundamentally human need: telling a story. With idiosyncratic, lively brushstrokes and rich colors, Katol knits stories that stretch beyond the canvas to be spun on with the help of the viewer's imagination.

The plot changes involuntarily in the course of the creation process. In the beginning, there is always an inspiration, an impulse in the form of a picture. It doesn't matter whether it's an advertisement or a photo from a magazine. Katol transfers the seemingly every day in a different constellation onto the canvas, entangles it in a story, and gives it a new name.

With instinctive certainty and the knowledge of an infinite spectrum of colors, he places rough, virtuoso brushstrokes on the canvas, from which organic shapes gradually come together, mostly animals and people. Like Katol's pictorial subjects, the creation of his pictures is in itself shaped by the natural, lifelike principles of repeated destruction and incessant growth. Katol is not afraid to discard the previous in order to create something new from it. Initially discarded attempts at other images serve as a fabulous basis for new works and so the final results also carry a certain form of narration within them, which can be discovered through traces of color under the thick, impasto brushstrokes.
