Joachim RödererJoachim Röderer, born in Tuttlingen / Baden, studied art from 1981 to 1989 in Cologne and Madison / USA from Fred Meister and Paulette Werger. Since 1990 he has worked as a freelance artist. Joachim Röderer is metal sculptor. His preferred material is Corten steel, which is particularly resistant to weather influence and corrosion.

The artist deals with signs and symbols, representing forms that could be taken only from the molecular biology. Typical for that are the x-shaped forms of the X-chromosomes, which are based on the fact that two sister chromosomes are connected during the division. After the visible only under a microscope molecular shapes Röderer developed steel sculptures in millions magnification. But also he used other motifs for his creations. One of the arts experts describes the works of Röderer: “Joachim Röderer constantly works on the plastics, which brings unusual perspectives on what is supposedly known and makes it materially visible. In the example of the chromosomes it is a colossal magnification and objectification from mysterious formations, which are not visible and therefore available in the normal world.

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.
