Margot Stöckl: Sculpture "The Thinker", version in golden cast stone

About the thinking work Margot Stöckl's character head "The Thinker"

"The Thinker" is less of an anatomical study and much more of a capture of the thinking activity. The chin nestled in the hand, with closed eyes, he follows his deep thoughts, his forehead wrapped by "thinking furrows". An original, expressive work, whose rugged shape creates interesting shadow effects in sun or artificial light.

Cast stone edition. Limited edition, 199 exemplars, serially numbered and signed. Hand-cast and golden patinated. Format 23 x 30 x 21 cm (W/H/D). Weight 9.4 kg.

Born in 1963, Austrian sculptor

Margot StöcklPortrait of the sculptor Margot Stöckl. Margot Stöckl comes from Zillertal and started to like the fine arts in her early childhood. Consequently, she attended the Higher Technical School of Arts and Crafts in Innsbruck, but it would take years until she could devote all her energy to the art.

Stöckl works in wood, clay, stone and metal. She became famous thanks to a growing series of works entitled "Brainwork". It shows character heads, in which the artist represents expressive portraits of the ideal type personifications ("The Maker", "The Knower", "The Indomitable") or representatives of different cultures ("The Iroquois", "The Aztec"), following the tradition of her compatriot Franz Xaver Messerschmitt (1736-1783).

Sculptural representation of person's head and shoulders.

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.
