Inspired by Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee, Lenz Klotz developed a unique visual language of intersecting and oscillating lines, forming two-dimensional geometric figures reminiscent of calligraphy, musical scores, and other lyrical forms of notation. As invested in drawing, etching, and lithography as in painting, Klotz relied on both line and vivid color, often simultaneously. Although purely abstract, his work nonetheless indicates human narratives and experiences, both in its visual recalling of man-made systems and symbols and with its playful titles like Not only for illiterates (1961) or That’s Enough (2001).
