Shapes! Colours! More!
Lothar Götz has transformed Newcastle’s historic Hatton Gallery with a startling new commission.Lothar Götz is an artist best known for his large-scale, site-specific wall paintings, transforming spaces with vibrant colours and shapes. His new commission at Newcastle University’s Hatton Gallery is no exception.
Götz’s painting is characterised by its use of abstract geometric forms, fields and lines of intense colour, juxtaposed with one another. The new work, ‘Fairground Abstract’,responds to the Edwardian architecture and remarkable history of the Hatton Gallery and its collection, as well as its pivotal role in international innovations in exhibition design and installation art. Götz’s wall painting transforms the Hatton’s most historic gallery into a vibrant and immersive space where details of works from the Hatton collection are reimagined and brought to life through parallels in colour and form. If you need transforming yourself, then let some Götz goodness flow right through you.Fairground Abstract, until 4 January, Hatton Gallery, Newcastle University. hattongallery.org.uk
