Michael Pickl: Sculpture "Woman", polymer cast, hand-painted

Michael Pickl creates sculptures of plain contemporary men and women, as we can see daily on the streets, presenting them in moments of relaxation and happiness. No piece of wood is too crooked for the artist in order to make of it a human figure, even a modern one.

Quite fashion-aware in a small black dress and long boots, his "Woman" has a bright rose in her hand. Polymer cast with wooden finishing, partly hand-painted. Limited edition, 299 exemplars, serially numbered and signed. Format 9 x 29.5 x 7.5 cm (W/H/D), weight ca. 900 g.

* 1971, sculptor The German philosopher Immanuel Kant has once written, it was so crooked wood carved banister, that nothing in it could be straight. Quite and metaphorically shows the sculptor Michael Kastler Pickl (born in 1971), that the reverse does not apply: It is not wood to crooked, but not to a man, a very modern, even to generate. With the crudest woodcarving and finest knives Pickl creates completely contemporary men and women sculptures, as they could meet us on the road every day and portrayed them in moments of relaxation and happiness. Graduated of the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg, his art work done with delicate and brightly painted was represented in several exhibitions including several times in the New Art Salon at the Haus der Kunst in Munich.

Collective term for all casting processes that ars mundi carries out with the help of specialized art foundries.

Cast stone
Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

Cold cast bronze
Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

ARA wooden copy
In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

Ceramic casting
As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

Bronze casting
In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.

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.
