Hello, welcome!
thanks for visiting my profile.
I am living in Germany close to Frankfurt. Working as a consultant engineer I started sculpting as a hobby. Since 1998 I am working in wood and stone. From time to time I have pieces cast in bronze. My topic is, as you can easily see, the female torso in more or less abstract manner.

Willkommen auf meiner Seite!
Ich bin seit 1998 neben meiner beruflichen Tätigkeit als beratender Ingenieur auch Bildhauer. Als Autodidakt arbeite ich in Holz und Stein und lasse ab an an Bronzegüsse von ausgewählten Stücken anfertigen. Aktuell lebe und arbeite ich nach unserem Umzug von Oberursel (Taunus) nun in Nieder-Weisel bei Butzbach in Deutschland. Mein bevorzugtes Thema ist der weibliche Körper gern als Torso in mehr oder weniger abstrakter Ausgestaltung.

After having applied for about three years with the city council of Bad Homburg, this year I got an invitation to exhibit my sculptures in the Englische Kirche in Bad Homburg. The venue is the old church build around 1865 to serve the english spa community in Bad Homburg. It was secularized in 1914 and served then first as deposit and museum, later for cultural events.

For me this is the most beautiful exhibition space for sculptures. A large number of highly recognized sculptors have exposed there already: Hanneke Beaumont, Dietrich Klinge, David Nash.

On July 3rd was the vernissage, timed right between the important soccer games!
We had wonderful music: the three jazzers from the Saxophonbesitzer enjoyed the visitors and myself!

The works will remain there until next sunday, 27th of July. Open workdays 16-19h, saturdays and Sundays 14-18h.
Then i will have to remove 1,5 tons of material!!!

But it was more than worthwhile.

Stay all well!

Help me to find Mr. Jasper Schuringa and send him this message that I am intended to buy one of his used underpants at the price of 1000$ and complete my installation art.
