Lenz Geerk creates psychologically charged paintings that are removed from any specific time or place.  Emphasizing his subjects  in  such  a  way  as  to  draw  out  the  hidden  emotions  of  the  human  psyche,  Geerk  depicts  people  at  the threshold of excitation and in the throes of exploration.  With postures and gestures a fiction of representation, Geerk imagines  how a  certain  fragile  moment, derived  from neither model  nor  photograph, can instead be  expressed through  atmosphere  and  body  language. The  nearly  monochromatic  palettes,  only  occasionally  warmed  by  other colors, adds to the aura of emotional tension.
