Givan Lötz

(b 1982South Africa. Lives and works in Johannesburg)

Lötz’s current artistic interests reference places of emotional resonance as part of a search for enchantment in natural terrain. His work manipulates the capacity for paint to render organic forms and natural cycles of growth and decay. Through this process, he has developed a personal visual shorthand – a painterly proficiency borne from tacit learning.

He says: “With my work I hope to trace a connection with the land itself through its hidden narratives of displacement and loss – to find a solace in the regenerative cycles of nature by binding outer place (landscape) and inner world (mind-state).”
