P&T Luxembourg Art Collection II
Disparaged for a long time, the abstract lyric works of Moritz Ney, subtly tinged with a humour that is neither grating nor ironic, have become admired by all. Born on 26.7.1947 in Pétange, the artist, who originally worked as a customs officer, studied art in Germany and lived eight years in Brussels. A founding member of "Konschthaus Groussgas" in 1981, he is known for his "Vénus" on the Remich esplanade. Other notable works are a high-altar in Pétange and a sculpture at the Institute of High Technology in Luxembourg.
Moritz Ney never knew how to decide between sculpture and painting, nor between the expressionism of Kirchner or the fauvism of Matisse. His multicoloured sculptures, just like his landscapes, still life subjects, flower arrangements, and interiors, show a great deal of dynamism, imagination, and spirit. His often bold shapes are simplified. Ney respects neither proportion nor traditional perspective in his brightly-coloured, cheerful, and strong works which are dominated by orange, yellow, and especially pink, blue, and white.
