COSMOSCOW 2019
Stephan Balkenhol

Booth D8
 

Galerie Forsblom is pleased to participate in Cosmoscow 2019, with works by Stephan Balkenhol.

 


German artist Stephan Balkenhol is one of the preeminent sculptors of our time. His practice grew out of the dominant trends of Minimalism and Conceptualism in the 1970s, where he stood alone in his desire to reintroduce the figure to contemporary sculpture. Carved from a single wood block and often incorporating a pediment, each work demonstrates the artist’s raw and spontaneous treatment of the material. Chisel marks, fissures and splinters show the medium as both living and inanimate. Moreover, the characters are painted in the simplest but most effective colors and color combinations.
