Peter Hohberger: Sculpture "Europa" (1992), version in artificial marble

Gentle erotic of classical modernism: Hohberger´s sculpture Europa, created by him in 1992, is of an open and disarming sensuality. Europa, symbol of feminine, not the passing beauty of the youth, but rather the eternal stimulus for a man to take action. It is the moment of ravishment: self-forgetful and fully relaxed, this woman image created by Peter Hohberger charms everyone who sees it. We guess what incited Zeus when he abducted Europa, in the shape of a bull.

Peter HohbergerBorn 1939, former actor, now a sculptor and painter.

Born in Silesia on November 12, 1939, sculptor Peter Hohberger dealt as a child with the drawing and modeling. After a successful career as an actor he has devoted himself for many years of painting and the visual arts. He sees himself consciously as a sculptor in the classical sense.

His aesthetic basic understanding is shaped by nature; it is the beauty of the human body itself that fascinated him and he reacted by modernism untouched in his files and portrait busts. His models, he does not deny: They are the masters of ancient Greece, Auguste Rodin and especially Arno Breker, who taught him personally. Of all he has learned, and not just in the accuracy with which he knows to represent the beauty of the female body.

Hohberger said: "art that enriches life and happy people survived any kind of so-called “Spirit of the time".

Marble powder bound by a polymer. Artificial marble is characterized by a fine white surface that comes very close to marble.

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.
