Lothar Hempel - Escape from Krystall, 2007.

Escape from Krystall is a metallic C-print from the group exhibition Pale Carnage, presented at Arnolfini in 2007.

Lothar Hempel works with a range of mediums, from painting and sculpture to photographs and puppet-like figures. Through a simplified and stylistic form of painting, Hempel creates a sense of a theatrical charade. His dream-like and surreal forms allude to theories of the unconscious while reinforcing staged-ness and dramatic alienation. 

Lothar Hempel is a German artist living and working in Berlin. His work has toured  internationally and is included in the public collections of Saachi Collection, London and Museum of Modern Art, New York.
