About the work
Lothar Götz has created a new aquatint in an edition of 30 to accompany his site specific wall-painting which spanned the entrance of The London Open 2015, the Whitechapel Gallery’s triennial open submission exhibition, from 15 July–6 September 2015.
About the artist
Lothar Götz was born in 1963 in Günzburg, Germany. Götz is known for his prints, drawings and large-scale wall paintings which are dialogues with given environments, including foyers, reading rooms, offices or staircases. By reacting to the idiosyncrasies of the architectural points, he develops a network of lines that create a polychromaic pattern. Guided by experience and artistic decision instead of algorithms or random rules, Götz produces the pattern intuitively, balancing the underlying, sharply defined geometry of line with an exuberant and joyful show of colour.
Götz lives and works in London and Berlin.
Götz has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad. His solo shows have included DOMOBAAL, London, 2012; Gasworks, 2001; the Chisenhale, 2002; and the Economist, 2003 in London; Museum Goch, 2004 and MMKI Düsseldorf, 2005 in Germany; rahncontemporary in Zürich, 2008 and the Petra Rinck Gallery in Düsseldorf, 2009. Group shows include the Contemporary Art Society’s ARTfutures, Bloomberg SPACE, 2005; David Risley Gallery, London, 2007; mima, Middlesborough, 2007; and shows in Amsterdam; Dublin; Hamburg; Hanover; Salamanca; Wilhelmshaven and Wuppertal since 2005, including participation in the 2008 Prague Triennale. He is represented by DOMOBAAL, London and Petra Rinck Gallery, Düsseldorf.
