Ottmar Hörl: "Pug" (2008), unsigned version

The pug is the living attempt, the idea of an art work. It is the image of eccentricity, of a character of form of life which, directly connected to the word "dog" leads to a reduction ad absurdum. It is a state, an artistic project, an attempt. As life companion, the pug is related, among others, to Heinrich Heine, the English Queen Victoria, Andy Warhol, Jackie Kennedy, Paula Abdul, Napoleon, Loriot, Rilke or Valentino.

This art object is made in Germany of weatherproof, shockproof and non-toxic plastic by rotation process All components are of German origin and subjected to constant quality control. Plastic sculpture, golden color. Format 42 x 28 x 38 cm. Unlimited edition, unsigned.

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.
