Inside Art: A "bozzetto" for a monumental sculpture
Taking the strictest corona regulations into account, work continues on a sculpture about 4.5 metres in size. These pictures and photographs of the working process and the bronze sculpture on a scale of 1:10 are unedited.
Thank you very much Axel Selbach for the great cooperation! (ASM-CNC)
Presentation of my first limited and hand-bound edition
I am pleased to present you my new artist’s edition, limited to only 10 (+2). The whole working process, starting from the layout to the complex double-sided printing and finally the binding of the folded sheets, I would like to refer to the registered p: photography unlimited berlin (Website). Alexander Schippel does a great job. Artists can work in this workshop on the most modern printers at low cost and are wonderfully supported by Alex! Many thanks, Alex, for the excellent cooperation!
After the printing I decided to use a hardcover to protect effectively the pictures printed on the finest cotton paper. For each edition I enclose one of my hand-signed drawings in the appropriate format.
Has this aroused your interest?
Let’s get in touch!
New series of works made in Sicily
I spent in July 4 inspiring weeks in different parts of Sicily. Meeting again the German film director Wolf Gaudlitz was exciting. During a hiking tour of over 8 hours he showed me hidden woods in the natural park of the Madonie. New photographs and a Bozzetto for a new sculptural work will be published in the next months.
Meeting with Axel Selbach the CEO of ASM – Wermelskirchen
I contacted many German high-tech companies, among them FAG and Vorwerk. FAG Kugelfischer invited me to their branch office in Wuppertal with their large training centre. The result was an exciting conversation. They would have liked to work together with me, technical difficulties made this impossible. Incredible, however, was a lack of expertise in the requested areas.
In the end, I found a partner in the highly specialized medium-sized company ASM in Wermelskirchen. They cooperate with the aerospace and automotive industry and have much experience with complex manufacturing processes and prototyping.
We are working on a great project in Berlin not far from the Brandenburg Gate. I would like to reveal just one thing at this point: It will be a column-like sculpture, about 4.5 m high, which will probably be installed in spring next year.
