    Willi Kissmer: Sculpture "Drapery II", version in cast stone

    Kissmer: The secret Aura of feminine perfection

    The true nature of the body is three-dimensional, haptic. The detail artist Willi Kissmer dedicates to it in his plastic works. The invisible side, which creates in his paintings a subtle tension can be seen now. Kissmer achieves, with his empathic, almost hyperrealist shape language, based on his graphic talent, to fully recreate the crackling erotic of the theme. The wrapping fabric becomes an unmistakable spice for the optical delight. Kissmer is focused on the expressive center of the female body and making it a highly personal projection surface of the viewer. By this, the works of the internationally known artist achieve perfection.

    Two high-quality materials – one theme. Depending on the ambience, the sculpture "Drapery II" is available in bright cast stone or as shimmering bronze version. Or, according to the mood. Both editions exclusively at ars mundi. 

    Edition in cast stone, hand-cast. Limited edition of 299 exemplars, serially numbered and signed. Format 14 x 34.5 x 11 cm. Weight 4272 g.

    Willi KissmerWilli Kissmer is born in 1951 in Duisburg. He studied with Professor Hermann Schardt graphics at the Folkwang School in Essen. Study tours have taken him to Italy, South America and Russia. In 1987 he was followed by a visit to India.

    Exhibitions in Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg and Portsmouth, New York, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Basel underline its international importance.

    He is a gifted master of etching technology. He makes expressive works of sensual aesthetics and raised charm with passion and perfection. Half range, half revealed Kissmers file by combining sexy fascinate by body and tissue, smooth skin and drape of the cloth landscape. Almost photo-realistic, and superior, Kissmer creates erotic art in perfection but the snapshot of camera.

    While the internationally known artist works with photographic templates with simple image-realism have his works, however, little to do. The previously created black and white photographs are carefully arranged by him, until the posture of its model and the folds of their clothing, corresponds exactly to its ideas to every detail. On this basis, manufactures Kissmer in labour intensive detailed work photorealistic oil paintings, in which he approaches working step by step to the "reality" behind the image. The result is images that hyper realistic exaggerate the photographed arrangement - and which act as a colour oil painting, much closer, more accurate and more alive than ever could a mere photograph.

    The true nature of the body is three-dimensional, tactile. The dedicated artist Willi Kissmer detail in his sculptural works. The invisible side, which creates a subtle tension in his paintings, is now to be seen. Kissmer succeeds with his sensitive, almost hyper real form language based on his graphic talent the sizzling eroticism of the subject to get around upright. The enveloping material is the unmistakable spice for visual pleasure. Kissmer focuses on the expressive centre of the female body and makes it a highly personal projection of the viewer. Only then is perfecting the art of internationally known artist.

    Designation for an art object (sculpture, installation), which is produced according to the will of the artist in multiple copies in a limited and numbered edition.

    Artist's multiple contributed to "democratization" of art as the work was made available and affordable for a wider audience.

    A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

    While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

    The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
