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.

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.

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.
