Lothar Guderian

The work of the German artist Lothar Guderian (born in 1939) focuses on cardboard and the exploration of three-dimensionality. He combines the handmade cut-outs to form a complex pattern, which, turns into a filigree 3D collage through layering.

Guderian's monochrome painting impresses with a graphically light form of expression. The quality is comparable to the reliefs of Jan Schoonhoven or the embossed prints of Günther Uecker. Sometimes horizontal and vertical, sometimes diagonal, interwoven in a deliberately laid out and ethereal order – the artist's variations are endless. But his search for a clear form, for harmony and aesthetics, takes the first rank. Guderian works are a real discovery!
