The connection between Luthar Gotz’s use of colour and form, and the connection to the architectural space these formations of block colour are situated within are what makes the work so successful. Gotz’s architectural murals, are all considered for and within the realm of the space; after he makes exhaustive sketches about the space, he maps out the way in which the colours will be distributed, in order to suit the architecture of the surrounding site. He then chooses the colours, again in accordance with the site, creating works which both contradict, challenge and compliment the space they are enveloped within.
I am very interested in the way that Gotz creates site-specific installations, with the architectural space being mirrored within the design of the work. In my own work exploring colour, there is a link between an architectural environment (the mall) and the colours I have collected. I would like to feature the retail environment as an architectural presence within my work, and looking into the processes and ideas, and then eventual outcomes of Gotz’s work has made want to consider creating some material works, within a space, away from my comfort zone of digital art.
