Karl F. Hofeditz: Wall object ‘Grass’

The lifelong familiarity with the material of metal as well as his knowledge of processing techniques is discovered in all his metal objects again and again. They achieve their effect through Hofeditz’s unmistakable artistic look that gives him an opportunity to bring together the different color effects and surface structures of copper, brass and tin in a static harmonious overall concept. The wall sculpture ‘Grass’ shows it immediately: of lifeless heavy metal Hofeditz sets vivid nature in the scene. On crude roughly worked soil grow delicate stalks._x000D_


Elements of copper, brass and tin processed according to the old silversmith techniques and double hard brazed. Each sculpture is a handmade unique piece, signed and numbered. Limited to 66 copies. With suspension device, format 60 x 60 cm.

Karl F. HofeditzThe 1948-born sculptor Karl F. Hofeditz works with different materials. On his farm in Trendelburg-harness creates works in wood, water and light sculptures for indoor and outdoor use.

And not least of metal - all his professional life he has devoted to this material, he completed his studies but before the training to the blacksmith and the gold and silversmith.

Copper is the oldest metal known to mankind and used in crafts - at least since 8000 B.C - a whole epoch of the Neolithic period is named after it.

This fascinating metal experienced an artistic highpoint with the copperplate engraving in the 16th century. Picasso appreciated this graphical method for its line sharpness and contributed to its revival today. Copper has firmly established itself also in the field of sculpture.

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.
