For me the ideal artwork is something to fall in love with. It should be strangely, strongly self-evident in an organic way, meaning this artwork is the only way it could be, the only way it could be made. It has power like a sacred object, something you want to return to again and again. Every time you look at the artwork it gives you something to take with you.





I wrote down a few rules for myself, to read when in the studio, making art, as a reminder for where I want the artwork to go. (It doesn’t mean I achieve this every day, but it is something I aim for ;-)

- Making art should feel like rock-and-roll

- is about now

- Minimalistic, without losing the poetry

- Make the art you need

- Expand beauty

Arachne – metamorphosis
The message conveyed through my sculpture is about the skilful, industrious and sensitive but at the same time strong woman, qualities that have remained eternal. The message can also be read in another key: as a parable about the power of art and the secular antagonism between creativity and authority. Or about commercial competition, where the status of winner is the privilege only of the great and powerful, a dominant mechanism that has not changed from ancient civilization to the new contemporary gods of the era of globalization (large corporations). In my sculpture, I created the moment of the metamorphosis of the young girl Arachne, by reducing her body, becoming a spider with a big belly from which she draws the thread (Poet Ovid). In ancient Greek legend, the world's first spider was born out of a woman's pride. The goddess Minerva (Athens, in the civilization of ancient Greece) was recognized as the most skilled weaver but a young girl, Arachne, surpassed her, although this girl "Neither by rank or nation is famous, but by skill" (Poet Ovid) . In the competition between the two, the fabric of Athens was predictably large: a scene of Olympus and a tribute to the glory of the gods. The canvas of the young girl Arachne is more beautiful, she surpassed the goddess in the craft, but in her canvas she described the gods as carnal beings whose whims, passions and petty jealousies create suffering in the lives of mortals. In revenge, the goddess Minerva punished the young girl Aracne, tore her fabric and hit her forehead three or four times with a shuttle. Arachne tried to hang herself but Minerva saves her by telling her "She lives, but still hanged" and sprinkles her with Hecatean poison (a herb of the goddess of the Hecate spells) and metamorphoses her into a spider to weave into eternity.

Holding the wheel of life
Vielseitig angewendetes Symbol für Einheit und Zusammenhalt widerspiegelt das Rad des Lebens Simplizität, Potenzial und Vollendung ... Der ästhetische Aspekt kommt hier besonders zum Ausdruck und füllt den Raum mit dem stillen Ausdruck von Vollkommenheit. Die Stärke des Zusammenhaltens wird hier durch das Rad repräsentiert. Vollständig und im Gleichgewicht steht das Rad des Lebens ohne Anfang und Ende als ein in sich wiederholender, vollständiger Kreislauf.

Time and movement VII
On a piece of driftwood rescued from river Ebro, the artist has continued the carving process already started by the atmospheric agents: sun, water, wind, ice,... as well as other living things: mainly xylophages. This work is thus executed by quite a group of modelling "artists".

Pygmalion & Galatea – metamorphosis
I sculpted in marble the moment of metamorphosis, as described by the great poet Ovid, who lived the last years of his life in Romania at Tomis ((Constanta today), being forcibly exiled from Rome in the year 8 AD and was buried approx. 9 years later in the same locality. . . The moral of my sculpture: eternal beauty, found exclusively in art. I sculpted the moment of the metamorphosis, setting in motion Galatea’s silhouette, abandoning the eternal condition in favor of the perishable. Detachment of the statue to awakening to life leaving the body in the negative, revealing the sequence of movement from the right position of the statue to the downward position on the pedestal, both in front and behind the sculpture. I gave the free spaces meanings of stihii and centrifugal coverage, to suggest movement, with the appearance of a disorder assumed to contradict the static attitude of classicism, while the naked silhouette of Galatea benefits from retained details vaguely reminiscent of the classical manner. At the top of the sculpture, in front, I carved the negative mark of the hand of the goddess Aphrodite that gave life to the statue. The features of Galatea's face are vague, without details. I simply sculpted Pygmalion, without clothing details, I gave importance to the position of the body, after long hesitations between several variants and the facial expression is amazement and wonder for the miracle that took place. His face is slightly caricatured, expressive, specific to the contemporary style. Here, as in other sculptures, we followed the principle that while painting is a play of shadow and light, sculpture is a tandem between full and empty in which light plays.

MADREAEON, ILIVEMYLIFETREECYCLE
I am literally part of the recycle system, when I die, my body will be burned or decompose and live on as little particles in other things. I have also given life, which makes me part of the reproductive system. With the work 'MADREAEON, ILIVEMYLIFETREECYCLE' I made a portrait of myself as part of the recycle system and as a transferee of life. The posture of the woman is open, without a gene, the legs graceful like a Venus, the arms like branches of a tree. It is also like a blood vessel system, full of life.

Io, von Argos' hundert Augen überwacht
Eine dreiteilige Plastik mit einem Thema aus der alten griechischen Mythologie, welches auch für die heutige Zeit sehr zutreffend ist. Nachdem Io, vom ehebrechenden Zeus verführt oder vergewaltigt wurde, verwndelt der Göttervater diese, aus Angs vor seiner Gemahlin,in eine Kuh. Die gekränkte, eifersüchtige Ehefrau will nun jene schöne, weiße Kuh zum geschenk. Zeus erfüllt ihr den Wunsch, aber Hera hat nichts anderes zu tun, als sie an einen geheimen Ort zu verbannen und von ihrem hundertäugigen Wächter, dem Ungeheuer Argos überwachen zu lassen. Zeus bekommt ein schlechtes Gewissen und will Io helfen. Er begibt sich zum Götterboten Hermes,n verzaubert sich selbst in einen Specht und weißt ihm den Weg zur Nymphe Io. Hermes soll auf seiner Flöte spielen und zwar solange bis der gefährliche Wächter eingeschlafen ist. Im Anschluß soll Hermes das Ungeheuer töten. Was dieser auch befolgt und erledigt.

Changes 2010
Greenham Business Park, the former Royal Air Force World War Two airbase, Berkshire This is Changes by the Icelandic sculptor Gudrun Nielsen, a monumental piece that has just been unveiled at Greenham Common where US bombers used to land – you get the references just by looking at it. Since the Greenham Common women saw off the last of the Right Stuff in 1988 the trees have returned along with the birds and the rest of the flora and fauna, and the military buildings have either been demolished or converted by the Greenham Common Trust which now owns it. Nielsen won a competition along with the late Michael Kenny, but that was 12 years ago and while Kenny’s large geometric form, Broken Symmetry, was unveiled almost immediately by Ringo Starr (a Kenny fan and local resident), Gudrun’s was a little tardy in taking off, as it were............... 17.11.2010 / Simon Tait's Diary http://www.artsindustry.co.uk/features/simon-taits-diary/45

Remains
Remains is started as a small series of works, where found plastics were placed onto wooden boards. Those boards where used as antler boards and serve now as a way to showcase remains from modern worlds. In my work I tend to connect different themes and materials. I am intrigued by the diversity and interconnectedness of our world today. How whatever we do today, no matter how small or big, affects others on an immediate and global scale.

Bee Banana
Bienen und Kunst, muß das sein? Baumstamm und Bienen, waren schon immer eine Einheit. Kunst und Banane gehen seit Thomas Baumgärtel auch gemeinsame Wege. Damit auch im Öffentlichen der Raum für Kunst wegweisend wird, hier die Banane, dreidimensional. Und die Bienen. Sie bestäuben ganz nebenbei das Umfeld; eine Befruchtung, die wir uns auch von der Kunst wünschen.

Genesis. Thought.
Project “Genesis. Dances with shadows” scrutinize feelings, mind, mental and physical, material. To Imagine. To Understand. To Feel. To See. My task is not only creation art images as a combination of different materials (included but not limited by glass, metal, wood and stone) but to understand what is the cornerstone of our consciousness, what is The Genesis? Thought. Imagination as basement, a freedom to think and to learn. The only first way to self cognition is Thought!
