Über das Werk
K. O. Götz painted the gouache "Cherry V" in the 34 x 26 cm format in 1995, the year in which he turned 81. In this work, we see carefully coordinated patches of colour in more or less saturated red and black. The detail of the brushstrokes and the squeegee, and of the subtle gradations of the black and red hues clearly demonstrate that, despite his visual impairment Götz, was still capable of creating a high-quality gouache in his hallmark style, of a strongly nuanced, classically Informel structure.
