About the artist
Inspired by 1/87 scale model figurines, Gatz created his first Box Story in 2010 as a gift to his girlfriend. Self-taught, encouraged by enthusiastic feedback on his box stories, he has enjoyed setting up miniature characters in grandiose situations ever since, that are sometimes amusing and sometimes poetic. He invents custom-made prospects, makes multiple nods to art history, and captures comical situations.
Admiring Japanese aesthetics, he builds his scenes in sober, uncluttered universes, working with a selection of materials: wood, polystyrene, foam sheets and paper.
Gatz likes to divert the figurines from their primary function, inventing a custom-made destiny for them. The humor and poetry of the moments he freezes in his boxes are reinforced by the titles that accompany them.
