Geometry in harmonic motion: the sculptor Gábor Toeroek is a true master of transformation. His sculptures originate in simplified linear forms, yet with a lot of craftsmanship he transfers the formerly static structures into flowing movements and gives them elegance and dynamism.

Toeroek, born 1952 in Budapest, lives and works in Wiesbaden since 2004. In addition to exhibitions throughout Europe, but also in Asia and the US, he has designed a variety of large sculptures for public space, in places like Berlin and Frankfurt.

Gábor Toeroek, a cultural award winner of the German-Hungarian Society, designs his works with a specific quality of space. They are composed of the interplay of interior and exterior space of the plastic. "Toeroek's conception of space is based on a dynamic idea, after which there can not be a permanent room once and for all ... "(ArtProfile, 2002).

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.

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.
