Memories, space and deconstruction are subject areas with which von Motz deals intensively. During his education at the Nuremberg Academy von Motz learned his profound understanding of the most diverse artistic techniques. In his works, he uses a variety of basic elements of design, graphics, painting or photography. Another component to refine his work is the study of sculpture in London. This provides him with the basics to design and to create spaces. The space itself, and the deconstruction of real and not real spaces have always fascinated von Motz. Von Motz deals with the question of whether there is space in general, whether one can define space or whether space does not exist and he himself, as an artist, creates so-called “non-places”.
