The ritualistic and existential work of Hermann Nitsch satirizes and questions the moral ethics of atavistic religion and sacrifice.
Nitsch’s abstract splatter paintings, like his performance pieces, established a theme of controlled violence, using bright reds, maroons, and pale greys that communicate organic mutilation.
Nitsch has been imprisoned a number of times for blasphemy and provoking scandal.
