Mixed media, butterfly

Presented as both sculpture and theatrical maquette, Lothar Hempel’s Morning Rain offers a sentiment of naïve elegance. Constructed from simple craft media such as fabric and newspaper, Hempel draws from the enchantment of imagination, converting everyday materials into a fanciful puppet theatre. Consciously exposing the process of his making, Hempel’s figure makes no pretence to illusion. It’s interpretation as fictional scene, fragile museum piece, exotic artefact, or simply formalist intrigue is openly offered for viewer’s participation in Hempel’s suggested fantasy.
