Klaus Börner: Trilogy " Trip to Italy I-III"

There are just a few elements included by Klaus Börner in his distinctive picture objects – the sun, a tree, a distant forest, a passing bird. And, still, he manages to present the characteristics of a landscape with minimalist charm and precision.

The educated goldsmith and sculptor included half plastic elements of patinated bronze in a finely structured slate plate, creating an amazing depth effect of his objects and also capturing the color composition of sunset light in a most impressive manner (an effect intensified by the three objects as a whole work of art). The inspiration for sun colors was the skin of a jasper snake in artist´s collection.

Three wall objects of slate and bronze. Each piece is a single piece, signed by the artist. Format: each 20 x 15 cm, Weight each ca. 2.5 kg. With suspension device. Catalogue number: 445/450/455.

Klaus BörnerThe goldsmith and sculptor Klaus Borner, born in Hildesheim in 1951 is a solitaire, a maverick and a loner - an artist who does not follow the current and quickly forgotten art trends, but goes his own way, inspired by the love to nature.

The characteristic features of Borner’s style is the usage of slate. He combined small rectangular slates with different materials such as bronze, steel, brass and sapphires. They combine in the fine, carved lines, creating enchanting landscape impressions. The compositions consist of a few image elements such as trees or animals so they can leave plenty of room for your imagination.

Video of the creation process of Klaus Borner:

An art work that is cut in from a stone or wooden surface, not modeled in the round.

According to the degree of projection one can distinguish between low-relief or bas-relief and high relief. The sunk relief is a common form of reliefs in Ancient Egypt, where the depicted scenes were cut into the stone or wood surface.

Among the most famous reliefs are the works of the Florentine master Lorenzo Ghiberti. He created, among others, the bronze doors of the Florence Baptistery, called by Michelangelo the "Gates of Paradise".
