*1925 Dillingen/Donau – lives in Munich
Heinz Butz, who was born in Bavaria in 1925 and now lives in Munich, belongs to a generation of abstract artists who have never completely denied the relation to the figurative.
“Grasping life consciously with all one’s senses, through seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and feeling, is a concern of many artists. For Heinz Butz, after his existential experiences as a young man, this has become a necessity in order to continually reaffirm for himself life in all its diversity. The same holds for the intellectual understanding of connections both large and small.”
