About my artwork
I work in Wood, Steel & Metal's and stone. I made Sculptures from small, up to 100 ton, like the Monument in Seoul, Korea in 08.
If you are interested in something very special, you can contact me.
I was invited to 8 Intl. Sc. Symposiums and has over 30 one man shows in many countries, and more Group shows too.
Artists I like
Henry Moore, Richard Sierra, R. Long and many more
I'm very interested in the developing Ideas and the working-progress
itself. I made many CGI, Computer Graphic and now also at 3D Computer design.
I'm very interested in large scale projects and have experience of that.
I also design architecture in a new and sculptural feel. Space and light architecture.
What exhibitions are good at the moment?
Venezia Biennale, Documenta in Germany, Art Basel, Biennale in Seoul etc.
My dear friends, like a new born baby, first there is a whole lot of things to get the look, feel and get used to it. We're in such a moment, even we are somehow established artists, but there develop many different ways how to show our works and bring it to people worldwide to see it. I hope we don't sell everything, as we need some presents too. Presents for the future, family, friends and for nature too, who give us freely all things we need to make it in first place.
Even we are a small group now, we never know how successful it will be in near future? I wish all of you thoughtful days ahead and a loving, peaceful and creative New Year. May our effort, mind and heArt in this process
of creating most wonderful works be blessed that many people, who open there senses to see and can enjoy and learn to create a more peaceful and wonderful world for all. The universal Spirit , the most powerful and fantastic creator, and His Nature would like to make There gifts to us all. Are we open for that? If we are to busy with all the small things around us, how can we be open to receive all the wonders around us, precious Gifts, we never looked at ? The gifts for our body are soon gone, the gifts for mind and heArt last forever and multiply.
This would be much more than business. Or will it become the new kind of business in the world? This would be an everlasting business and a most joyful one. I maybe crazy but I'm not the only one.
I hope to hear from all of you, let's keep the fire alive !
