Lothar Goetz 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 polychromatic pattern. Guided by experience and artistic decision instead of algorithms or random rules, Goez produces the pattern intuitively, balancing the underlying, sharply defined geometry of line with an exuberant and joyful show of colour.
Lother Goez (b. 1963 in Gunzburg, Germany) completed an MA at the Royal College of Art in 1998, after studying in Germany at Aachen, Düsseldorf and Wuppertal. He has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad, with solo shows at galleries such as Gasworks (London), the Chisenhale (London), Mappin Art Gallery (Sheffield), Museum Goch (Germany), David Risley Gallery (Copenhagen) and the Petra Rinck Gallery (Dusseldorf), and has been included in group exhibitions in Amsterdam, Dublin, Hamburg, Hanover, Salamanca, Wilhelmshaven and Wuppertal.
