Günther Stimpfl: Sculpture "Ambiguity", version in artificial marble

In many religions, the deities were represented as bisexual beings, as in Aristophanes’ myth of the primordial, double-headed, bisexual humans. From the ancient Chinese yin-yang theory and the alchemists´ experiments to the modern abyssal psychology and biogenetics, speculations on separation and reunion of the male and female principles are lining up.

With this idol based on the interrelation theme, Günther Stimpfl brought to a severe, abstract form this bipolarity, the duality of existence, the spirit-body ambivalence and the fusion of two bodies.

Standing figure "Ambiguity": Limited world edition, overall 458 exemplars. Serially numbered and signed. Height 110 cm. Base surface 32 x 13 cm. Edition in white, polymer-bound artificial marble. Limited series of 199 exemplars. Partly silver-plated.

Gunther Stimpfls rise to the art elite began in Vienna. He was from 1964 to 1972 as master student of Fritz Wotruba and Joannis Avramidis at the Academy of Arts.
