Lothar Nickel’s Early Career and Inspiration
Before becoming a freelance sculptor, Lothar spent several years studying Sculpture at the Alanus University of Arts and Social Sciences in Alfter, Germany. Lothar spends about four months a year in Florida, splitting the rest of his time between studios in Fulda, Germany, near Frankfurt, and Pietrasanta, where the Alps meet the Mediterranean in Italy. Although abstract, Lothar’s works often lean towards figurativism. Citing Brancusi and Henry Moore as inspirations, his recent sculptures experiment with the shape of light and the clarity of marble forms.
