Sculpture: Stainless steel, Steel, Metal on Stainless Steel.
"Everything has two sides" is supposed to focus people on the scope of their decisions.
“Alles hat zwei Seiten“ soll den Menschen auf die Tragweite seiner Entscheidungen fokusieren.
Individual works receive concrete statements that have a social-cultural background shown gestures. The sculptures show e.g. statements, quotations, or statements with which Koethe is identified.
Koethe´s work impresses the viewer with a captivating dialogue between the material he uses and the surprisingly new language of forms he has found for it. This sculptor creates, and skilfully exploits, the contrast between cold and rigid steel and the shapes that here rise and wind upwards as if in natural and organic growth.
The characteristics of steel, hardness and heavy mass, seem to have disappeared - Koethe´s objects impress the viewer through a seeming lightness, malleability and, in particular, structural flexibility.
When light hits the shining, ground steel surfaces, changing views become emphasized that the shapes and forms are able to present to the spectator. Rays of light on these metal objects underline viewers' impression that they are confronted with a hidden dynamic of things that flow and glide.
