Abstract

New commission
for Leeds Art Gallery
LOTHAR GÖTZ XANADU
Lothar Götz [b.1963, Günzburg, Germany] is known for his large-scale wall paintings and immersive architectural displays, characterised by the use of vividly coloured abstract geometrical forms, shapes and lines.
Made possible by the support of our Art Happens with Art Fund campaign, Götz has produced one of his most ambitious commissions to date for the original Victorian staircase of Leeds Art Gallery. Götz’s stunning wall painting Xanadu links the ground and first floor galleries, leading visitors up to the new light-filled renovated galleries above.
“Staircases provide the veins of
a building, immersing the visitor spatially in a different way to that
of the traditional gallery space. I am interested in how an artwork can be experienced by one’s whole body, the image changing constantly as one moves up or down the stairs. I want
to turn the staircase of Leeds Art Gallery into a colourful contemporary artwork, juxtaposed with its Victorian architecture.” —Lothar Götz
