Watercolour on paper
Signed on Verso
This auction is raising proceeds for St Wilfrid's Hospice Eastbourne
Whilst Lothar Götz’s practice ranges in scale from site-specific wall paintings and room-sized spatial installations to paintings and drawings, there is a clear coherence and dialogue across his body of work through its continual referencing and engagement with ideas about architecture and space and its characteristic use of abstract geometric forms, fields and lines of intense colour, juxtaposed with one another. His work is informed by real factors of circumstance, site, or the particular inhabitants or histories of a building, space or place, but mixes these factors with further imaginary or fantasy ones. Similarly, many of his drawings and paintings represent the floor plans of idealized dwellings, sometimes for specific people or historical figures, sometimes for imagined ones. Together they form part of an ongoing series exploring spatial ideas for domestic spaces: apartments, houses, bungalows, villas. Like Lothar’s wall paintings respond to the actual site they are located so do many paintings and drawings respond to writings or historical artworks, often connected to the ideas and visions of Modernism.
