Ludger Thuilot: Stele ‘Taurus V’, hand-painted cast stone

The Bocholt painter and sculptor Ludger Thuilot is a skilled wood carver who first of all thinks plastically which is clearly visible in many of his pictures. In his stele ‘Taurus V’ this is the case: from a wooden column of about 180 cm height rises - fused with it with the too long ‘daliesk’ legs – a delicately crafted sculpture with an enormous spatial effect. Thuilot’s intention is not to be ‘realistic’, he tries to penetrate through distortion and deformation to the not openly visible, hidden nature of the character shaped by him. Thuilot’s original stele is performed of real wood in the old masters’ woodcut technique, our replica is a hand-painted unique piece made of cast stone._x000D_


Stele ‘Taurus V’: a pair of tauruses bursting with strength and energy shows the fight among equals. Cast stone, hand painted (not weather-resistant and for indoor use only), format 178 x 53 x 30 cm, weight approximately 30 kg.

Painter and sculptor with great experimentation: Ludger Thuilot (* 1960) is an artist of astonishing versatility.

In his studio in the western Munsterland, on one hand he created drawings and paintings throughout the classic manner of traditional subjects of representational painting executing itself (about acts, landscapes and again: flowers). On the other hand he has a great passion for the unusual combination of painting techniques, which he expresses in abstract-minimalist works - often in conceptual collaboration with his artist friend Michael Sting (born 1959).

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.

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.
