Detlef "Dego" Gotzens (b. 1952, Cologne, Germany)
Since a very early age I was always drawn to Images, pictures, forms, lines and color, and instinctively felt very comfortable looking at art especially paintings with a sense of wonder and curiosity.
I’m constantly in the process to find a visual language that seem to be always changing from one work to the next and every piece is leading me to another place, where I’m wondering again what is behind the next painting or sculpture I’m making? It feels like a never ending winding track.
I believe in my paintings as well as sculptures there are elements of free expression and then again of controlled form and order, which is certainly a manifestation of my Personality showing thru or reflecting in my work.
Education: Master degree study, Glassmaker Guild of Cologne, Germany, 1975 -1977.
Detlef "Dego" Gotzens was chosen as Juried Winner in 2014 Round #2 and 2013 Round #3 of the ArtSlant Showcase series.
