Inspired by the dadaistic randomness, the work of Chris Göttel, who lives and works in Basel/ CH, reflects socialcultural as well as personal and daliy topics. As complex as the themes, so versatile are the media he uses. Painting, drawing, characters, found objects, photography are put together in a mixed technique and placed in a new context. Some pictures are telling stories, other pictures are sending a message, which has to be decoded. Chris Göttels approach is intuitive and the freedom in his pictures is perceptible – nor more rules!
