Lothar Nickel

New & Noteworthy Artist

Abstract expressionist sculptor Lothar Nickel was born in 1957 in Dusseldorf. His works are an artistic journey into marble, among other materials such as bronze, granite, and stone. With a hammer, chisel, and rasp, he creates to understand the unique properties of his chosen materials, allowing his works to reveal themselves as he works.

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.

Exhibits and Residencies

The artist has enjoyed exhibits and residencies across Europe and the USA. His work is also in private collections such as at the Coral Springs Museum of Art, Florida, USA, Museo del Bozzetti, Pietrasanta, Italien, SAS, Global Computing, North Carolina, USA, and Rosenfeld, New York City, USA.
