On occasion of this year's ArtCologne Galerie Christian Lethert is pleased to announce its 3rd solo exhibition with Cologne based artist Lutz Fritsch. With "Raum hinter Fläche" the artist presents his latest wall sculptures from the series "Construction" and new paper works with the title "Gedankenräume".
At first glance the colorful "Construction" wall sculptures appear to be fragile and delicate drawings on the wall. The rhythm of the colorful lines seems to put their light composition into motion and opens new special associations, depending on the viewer's vantage point.
In his works on paper under the title "Gedankenräume" Lutz Fritsch interrelates different shapes and colors. Black, grey or bright red paper cuts are set next to each other and open up perspective effects that almost remind of abstracted cuttings of architectural photography and evoke imaginary rooms.
Lutz Fritsch's new sculptures and works on paper unfold a suggestive power that takes the viewer into a space behind the surface ("Raum hinter Fläche").
The artist's latest big sculpture project "Standortmitte" was executed on the two traffic circles connected by the Bundesautobahn 555 between Bonn and Köln. His site specific sculptures re-structure the public space. Other examples in public space are the work "Rheinorange" (1992) at the mouth of Rhine and Ruhr in Duisburg and the "Bibliothek im Eis" (2005) in the Antarctic Neumayer research station.
Characteristic for Fritsch's artistic work is both the intuitive and the analytic involvement with space - expressed by sculpture, drawing and photography.
Lutz Fritsch was born in Cologne in 1955 and still lives and works in the city.
