Hans Kotter - Balance

Hans Kotter
Balance, 2006
Materials: Electroluminescence, PVC
Edition: Unique

Hans Kotter focuses on the metaphoric and sensual perception of material and of aesthetics of form. He gives light a sensual presence, an almost tactile density.

‘Balance’, a thin band of luminescent foil, was shown at the opening exhibition of Kinetica Museum in Spitalfields, and at Shunt Vaults, deep in the tunnels under London Bridge station. Accustomed ways of seeing are thrown off completely as the glowing blue line appears to have its source of light within the walls. It negates the perspective of corners, edges and surfaces as its linearity robs the spaces of all sense of spatial continuity.

Hans Kotter’s work has been exhibited widely throughout Europe and the United States. His work is in collections including the Targetti Light Art Collection (La Sfacciata, Italy), Museum Ritter (Waldenbuch, Germany), and Kinetica Museum (London).
