About the work

Götz uses colour to define the architectural qualities and the spirit of a space. He is interested in the way aspects of decoration and colour can have an impact upon us. His drawings form part of an ongoing series exploring spatial ideas.Whilst Götz’ practice ranges in scale from site-specific wall paintings and room-sized spatial installations to paintings and drawings, there is a clear coherence and dialogue across his body of work through its continual referencing and engagement with ideas about architecture and space and its characteristic use of abstract geometric forms, fields and lines of intense colour, juxtaposed with one another.Like Götz’ wallpaintings respond to the actual site they are located so do many paintings and drawings respond to writings or historical artworks, often connected to the ideas and visions of Modernism.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
