Lothar Götz (b. 1963, Günzburg, DE) lives and works in London, UK and Berlin, DE. Studied BA Visual Communication at FH Aachen, DE (1983-88); MA Aesthetics at University of Wuppertal, DE (1991-95); and MA Painting at the Royal College of Art, London, UK (1996-98). Götz extends the conventional grammar of drawing into the third dimension, claiming the space of architecture as his drawing board. He does so with the precise vocabulary of geometric abstraction, all the while articulating it in his own poetic idiom of colour.
