Lukas Göthman

Lukas Göthman paints letters which sentence by sentence build an intriguing visual composition set over a monocrome of colour. His paintings with their curves and impression of varying fields of depth are realised following a simple set of self made rules such as starting in the top right hand corner of the canvas and writing from right to left. 

With his phenomenal ability to work with colour each combination of a text and background colour set a different emotional tone for the work. It is the artist´s very private world of thought or emotion in which viewers are immersed through the intensity of the repetitive text.
