Armin Turk (1943-2013) began his artistic training in the early 1960s and completed his studies at the Folkwangschule in Essen in 1966. While Turk worked primarily as a landscape painter in his early years, he increasingly turned to color field painting from the mid-1970s. With his works, Turk always moved away from the usual theoretical debates. Rather, the focus of his artistic self-image was on the physical process of painting itself; his landscapes increasingly dissolved into abstract color fields. His late work is characterized by a subtle use of different layers of glaze and color transitions that draw the viewer into the picture.
