Bernhard Jäger: Steel object "Shadow play"

Bernhard Jager steel object regains its plasticity from the play of light and shadow. By striking vistas sculpture intersects manage the environment by involving the space in the presentation. Before a coloured wall, in front of a window in the center of the room, always take the figurative elements of the colour of the surrounding space. The light does the rest, it can reduce the surface stress or breakthroughs or even the contours. It can project the shadow of the object depending on the position of the light source in the foreground or in the background. The constant changes make Bernhard Jager shadow play into a living sculpture.

Object made of stainless steel, sanded on both sides. With 24 figurative elements. Limited edition of250 pieces, numbered and signed. Size: 25 x 25 x 0.3 cm on a plinth 25 x 7 x 0.8 cm. Weight: 2.2 kg.

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.
