"In my painting, colour comes first and mainly determines the mood expected by the viewer. Paintings have been created in colours of harmony or there are works that show a certain disharmony in the colours. For me personally, the form is secondary, that is, I prefer the abstraction."
Albert Enz was born in Switzerland in 1943 and lives in France. He studied chemistry and biochemistry. During his scientific work as a researcher in the pharmaceutical industry, he always followed his path as a (self-taught) painter. Numerous exhibitions in France, Switzerland, Germany and Italy since 1960 encouraged the artist to paint again after his retirement.
The current works are inspired by landscapes. Many of the pictures are impressions of travels in the south of France and Tuscany. The means of figurative statement are for Albert, form, colour and composition. Color, observation of colour, and the senses of colour are the basis for a creative human nature. Abstract compositions contain the memory with very specific feelings, which he then paints.
