*1951, Architect and Painter

Jochen BauerThe architect Jochen Bauer was born in Coburg in 1951. The last 30 years he belonged to the leading porcelain modelers of Germany. Since 1999 he devoted himself to architecture and painting as a free artist.

With his outstanding technique he is famous in his branch as a great talent, while it always goes about putting a concept in the third dimension. In his own works he preferred naturalistic motifs, which he implemented in flowing shapes and expressive poses with a precise view.

“The source of my creative activity is nature, the analysis of ecological connections…”

The Norwegian painter and graphic artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) was one of the most important precursors of expressionism. His works revolve around the great human tragedies between Eros and death, Munch turned relentlessly and penetrating the deepest human emotions.

The oppressive atmosphere of his most famous work "The scream" was typical of Munch and worked in his art with questions of life especially with fear, despair, melancholy, sadness, death, love and jealousy. In this bleak choice covers can be quite to his biography found: Munch lost mother and sister early and struggled in his life with depression and alcohol. Like hardly artists could Munch to express his state of mind to bring the emotion strong themes. However he painted and appeared his motives but strangely deformed in a very dynamic style of painting with bold colours and his and visual language and his way to symbolically represent the countries in mind. Edvard Munch was a pioneer of Expressionism and one of the most important painters of the 19th and 20th centuries.

In the summer of 2004 the two most famous paintings by Munch "The scream" and "Madonna", in the most spectacular art theft of our time from the Munch Museum in Oslo were stolen, but in August 2006 the images could be safe again.

An alloy of copper with other metals (especially with tin) used since ancient times.

Bronze casting:

When casting bronze, artist usually applies the lost-wax technique which is dating back more than 5000 years. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.

Sculpture "The Book Reader" by Ernst Barlachs is shown here as an example:

Ernst Barlach: Sculpture 'The book reader'

Ernst Barlach 'The Book Reader' - Lost Wax Casting Technique Part 1

First, the artist forms a model of his sculpture. It is embedded in a liquid silicone rubber composition. Once the material has solidified, the model is cut out. The liquid wax is poured in the negative mould. After cooling down, the wax casting is removed from the mould, provided with sprues and dipped into ceramic mass. The ceramic mass is hardened in a kiln, and the wax flows out (lost mould).

For lower-grade bronze castings, the sand casting method is often used which, however, does not achieve the results of more complex lost wax technique in terms of surface characteristics and quality.

Sand casting

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.
