About The Artwork

In the famous Untersberg marble quarry, where I have my open-air workshop, I often find interesting erratic boulders deposited there during the last ice age. Their natural and form inspire me to create, in a dialogue with that given form, unusual sculptures. This time nature had already done most of the preparatory work. My task was to find, recognize, slightly edit with great care, display and enjoy.

Born in Salzburg/Austria in 1939 into a famliy of artists I trained as a sculptor and worked as a restorer for several years before starting to experiment and create my own sculptures using wood, stone and bronze. Very early in my career I fell in love with the human form while also increasingly using my art to voice my concern about the immense human impact on our planet. My favourite materials are the famous marbles found around Salzburg (Adnet and Untersberg marbles). Decades ago I discovered local quarries as spectacular backdrops to my outdoor workshops. As a principle, when working with stone, I never use the aid of power tools. All my sculptures, including monumental ones, are exclusively carved by hand, using hammer and chisels only. In preparation for my sculptures I do intensive research, creating series of drawings and model sculptures using both clay and artist quality plasticine.
