Thomas Kratz artworks appear more minimal, abstract and occasionally monochromatic. He works across a variety of media, including painting and performance art—minimal gestures leave their traditions of figuration as well as their convention of abstract painting behind. His works operate outside the modern thinking, engaging instead with a rather speculative, nonhierarchical and hybrid approach. Kratz considers painting as part of a dynamic network of material and immaterial agents.
In addition to solo shows in Berlin, Catania, Frankfurt, Munich, Lisbon, and London, Kratz carried out a major solo show at the Bielefelder Kunstverein in 2012 accompanied by a catalogue published by Mousse. He has also shown in group exhibitions including Giorgio Galotti, Torino, Italy, Galerie Jahn, Landshut, Germany, Bielefelder Kunstverein, Bielefeld, Nomas Foundation, Rome, Clonlea Studios, Dublin, Galerie Kamm, Berlin, ICA, London, Fundação Carmona e Costa, Lisbon, and Kunstverein München, Munich, among others.
