Klaus Wortmann was born in Verden/Aller in 1959. After periods in Berlin, Paris and Marburg, he lives and works in Schirmitz/Oberpfalz. Since 1985 he has been working with light objects.
The play of light in the attic of a house inspired him 16 years earlier to create his own luminous print technique, combining light colors.
His motifs are developed with pencil, needlepoint pencil and design knife with which thousands of holes and cuts are made in the photo cardboard. Eventually they are supported with colored foils, photographed and reproduced as art prints. The process allows him to combine each pattern into different color variations.
