Lothar Götz Drawings

Goetz, Lothar (2023) Lothar Götz Drawings. Petra Rinck Gallery, Petra Rinck Galerie, Dusseldorf.

Item Type: Book


The publication brings together twenty recent drawings of Lothar Goetz, all executed between 2021 and 2023, all of the same size, 29,7 x 21 cm and pencil, colour pencil and watercolour on paper.
The small drawings are worked up in both colour pencil and more translucent watercolour washes, using a variety of toned papers, which give the works differing blue, cream, black and green grounds. The works are selected from several series that Götz has been working on. They range from the spinning, ludic shapes of Rotation - Crimson (2022), to the more dreamy, shifting surfaces of May (2021), the harlequin patterning of Celebration (2022) and the more dynamic juxtaposition of form and line in his Triadic Ballet series, which references the work of Oskar Schlemmer, such as Conversation with a Modernist Idea (2021). The latter reflects the strong influence of early modernism and the Bauhaus in his work, seen here also in other drawings , including Conversation with Sophie-Taeuber-Arp/3 (2021) inspired by the work of the Swiss artist. In addition, a striking drawing with a more centred yet fractured series of forms, comes from Götz’ recent Volcano series. In all the works seem to strike different tones and moods across the gallery spaces, from the playful to the almost mystic.
The publication also comprises a text by Rob Wilson, Architecture Editor of the Architects Journal, London
