STEPHAN BALKENHOL is regarded as pioneering in contemporary figurative sculpture and as one of Germanys most internationally renowned artists.
Balkenhols sculptures are mostly anonymous figures. Men and women, but also animals that reveal nothing, show no emotions and remain difficult to grasp. By largely taking back a psychologizing dimension, Balkenhols characters are always a mirror that reflects the viewers feelings, wishes and hopes.
Since 1992 and parallel to his woodwork he creates bronze works in small editions, which occupy a significant part in his oeuvre. More than 55 figurative bronze sculptures, which as well as the woodwork have the typical Balkenhol characterized traces of work, have been created so far.
Balkenhol is also known for his large-scale outdoor sculptures, which can be admired in prominent places in many cities around the world.
From Saturday, November 14th, we will be showing new works by STEPHAN BALKENHOL in our gallery on Kaiserstraße 67 in Mönchengladbach, Germany. The new bronze-edition titled "Dancing Couple" will be published for the exhibition.
