Ottmar Hörl: Sculpture "Richard Wagner", unsigned version purple

With the occasion of the 200th Richard Wagner´s birthday anniversary, 500 Wagner figures were accompanying the festivals in the festival park and town center of Bayreuth between 23rd July and 28th August 2013. "Concentrated in one place or scattered around the town, my installations became visual and touchable obstructions. They were supposed to trigger contemplations, a moment of pause. By this, the communication with the society intended by me, was initiated". (Ottmar Hörl)

Art object in four color versions, made in Germany of weatherproof, shockproof and nontoxic plastic, by rotation process. All components are from Germany and subjected to constant quality control. Unlimited edition, unsigned. Format: 42 x 102 x 60 cm. Purple version.

Der Künstler Ottmar Hörl Ottmar Horl (born 1950), President of the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg, is one of the most important contemporary German artists. His sculptural work touch upon the topic of standardization, the same design of numerous objects, surrounding us in everyday life. But he does it in a very humorous way, and his "Exhibitions" turn to real shows. When he drags a huge swarm of owls to Athens, puts hundreds of bears near the Brandenburg Gate, or shows 1000 meerkats at the “company trip”. All that is made of bright plastic. "Whether they are concentrated on a square or distributed in the urban space my installations turn to visual obstacles. Their aim is to provoke to think, to take a pause." His most famous performance was dedicated to the artist Durer and his famous watercolor “Hare”. The "Great Piece of Hare" by Horl, completed in 2003, included no less than 7000 rabbits, exhibited in the main market at Nuremberg.

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.
