Gerhard Petzl

Als Schokoladenkünstler und Bildhauer bin ich global einer der wenigen, die Kunst und essbare Materialien verbinden und auf höchster professioneller Ebene erstellen. Habe mich in den letzten Jahren als typischer 'Handwerker und Dienstleister' damit global etabliert. Sei es entweder eine personalisierte Büste (nach der Fotovorlage des Klienten), individuelle Projekte und Skulpturen für Firmen, Galerien, Museen und Kunstliebhaber oder eine Live-Performance auf der Bühne.

"Schokoladen Body Paintings", die ich bei Live Shows und Clubbings auf der Bühne zelebriere.

Pionier der "Schokoladenkristall-Kunst", wo ich die visuelle Schönheit der Schokoladenkristalle näher untersuche und sie als grossformatige Editionen oder als Designobjekte anbiete.

Nach 15 Jahren im Beruf hatte ich mich 2003 entschieden eine künstlerische Ausbildung zu machen und besuchte daher die Meisterschule für Kunst&Design (Bildhauerei) in Graz, Österreich und habe diese mit einem Diplom abgeschlossen. Seither arbeite ich auch mit anderen Medien, wie Bronze, Stein, Holz, Fotografie, Videos, Malerei und Grafiken. Mich einzuordnen ist schwierig, aber gerade in so vielen verschiedenen Medien tätig zu sein, reflektiert die Schönheit und Fülle der Kunst. Nachdem ich über 40 Länder bereist habe fliessen diese Erlebnisse und kulturellen Unterschiede auch oft in meine Kunstwerke ein. Ein wesentliches Element sind aber sicher die Licht und Schatten Wirkungen meiner Arbeiten, denn hinter jedem physischem Werk steht auch ein imaginärer Schatten, den es zu kontrollieren gilt (oder auch nicht).

Alice and the Cheshire Cat or Farewell to Wonderland
Alice, pale, innocent and distanced, has not only assigned her grin to the cat. She handed over her vitality exhaustively to the little cat-mummy, thereby creating an uncanny and Pygmalion-like inversion of what is dead and what is alive. A human and the beastly mode of existence. Fading away, her Victorian beauty reanimates the shrunken creature. As a cheshire cat it rises forever.

Siedlung
Gewachsene Strukturen und die Beziehungen der Menschen prägen den Mikrokosmos einer Siedlung auf engstem Raum. Dieser wandelt ständig sein Erscheinungsbild nach allen Seiten durch Zuzug, Wegzug, Neubau, Verfall, Zerstörung und Lückenfüllung. Zudem wirken globale Entscheidungen und Einflüsse von außen. Das Wechselspiel von inneren und äußeren Vorgängen gibt jeder Siedlung ihre einzigartige Historie und Gestalt.

An outcast sanctuary
Skatepark on Zeeburgereiland in Amsterdam, commissioned by the city of Amsterdam. 12 tile panels were printed with glaze after drawings were colored in with ballpoint to resemble delft blue. 135m1 of 2,5x2,5 tiles 8 high were put around the pools. Because the surfaces were scatered the park is considered as a giant organism with holes were you can see inside. Skaters were in the early eighties not very popular so in the drawings you'll find other outcast such as pigeons, woodlice and trash.

The Gold Rabbit ( Bronze Limited Edition 1/6)
The Gold Rabbit ... He popped out, just like that, one day, from my hat: sitting still and attentive... One ear more or less tilted depending on the secret that one confides in him and the material in which he is made to appear : A body made of plexiglass, carbon, steel, or aluminium... Why not a Golden Rabbit or a Silver Rabbit ? ...A few sleights of hand... Open your eyes now ! “The Rabbit” can be on a human scale or monumental, its dimensions will measure up with our dreams, whoever we are … ... “God is always doing geometry” wrote Plato. Joy now has a figure, a form, and volumes... Happiness is no longer an abstraction: it has a depth to it and four feet, that one just needs to caress to get a feel of bliss... ...A Rabbit like an ancient offering... A kind of Trojan Rabbit to let you into Wonderland... Soft and sweet... No one must be late when it comes to getting a kick out of life, repeats the Rabbit, at the entrance to the warren... The complicit wink of women, the lustful smile of men... ...The Rabbit at the “Origin of the World”, hidden behind the “Cony” of the Middle Ages... The “Cony” that naughty lads pushed into a metaphor and slid betwixt the thighs of lewd lasses... The “Cony” that lost, over time and at the razor’s edge, its ending in French, along with its last bits of hair... The “Cunt” revealed... ...The Rabbit of the « Garden of Delights »... Bosch’s Paradise within reach... A Rabbit sent down from Heaven … Happiness erected, one day, into a Cathedral... Stained-glass windows, to illuminate it… ...A prayer and a final sleight of hand... A herd of Rabbits coming out of the hat... Happiness multiplied... Rabbits of all sizes, each of them unique, sitting still, and attentive...

King Kong Balls in the garden
King Kong’s Balls, the Gaze of a King, the Royal Pause for the gallery... Millions of “Likes” as though in praise of: “Everyone can go fuck themselves”... Between Conceit and indifference, a certain idea of freedom cast in bronze... Sculpt and let the sculpture speak for itself... ... Those who will see nothing but its attributes will have seen nothing, understood nothing... A grand show to bug the ‘right-minded’... to deceive fools... A half-smile... ... The coarse illusion of an impudent Monkey... The taunt of Kong to set the art-fair “cheetahs’” tongues wagging, for all the masturbatory bonobos to cop complexes... His balls on the table like coconuts thrown in the faces of conformism... His balls out in the open to hide his butt that no one will ever see... ... The calm resistance of an untamed Monkey... His gaze is elsewhere... Far from the human menagerie, the losers, the unsightly, the dicks and the dickless... Far from this brash theatre, this crass comedy... ... The Kong has a dream... A paradise lost... With no cage and no master... A laugh that we cannot hear... His balls like a gong to summon the great feast...

APOLLO BELVEDERE (Pure White Marble / Edition of 1)
The Apollo of the Belvedere. My Years 1972-1974. Emancipation. ... A Gorgon’s curly mane... The Jim Morrison kind, sculpted with rollers, curls sealed with ammonia... The era’s canon of beauty, homemade-style. The first act of my emancipation... ... I was emerging from a childhood that hadn’t spared the rod… My desires cut short... My hair parted on the side... The front fold of my flannels neatly pressed... Not a word out of place... A stiff and starched, ordered childhood… My Self in the closet... My dreams hidden beneath my pillow... ... A pair of motorbikes rumbling across my nights... Hopper and Fonda’s choppers... A trail of dust... Easy Rider, full speed... Freedom sliding on the road... A pair of runaways opening the way for me ... America, the promised land of my Free Will... ..Music in the distance... Woodstock ‘69... Notes full of mud and fervour... Chords screaming with hope and crying out for liberation .... “Freedom, Freedom, Freedom”... Richie Havens’ improv as a personal message sent to me... “Got it”… ... In my mind, my escape plan... My secret to leave my chrysalid... “A long way from my home”... The immensity of the world before me... A swarm of Butterfly-Women on the horizon... ... Something was growing inside me, piercing beneath my skull, sprouting under my skin... Something dividing and rising... Something flowing out of me... I could feel myself becoming handsome; my wings sprouting... ... Hulk, Apollo, and Nietzsche: there was a bit of each in me... This “superhuman” feeling... Become what you are ... Freedom at age 18... The Door open at last... I was going to become what I am...

Journey to inner self
Thesis Project for the "Master’s School of Art and Design" - section sculpturing A bronze statue is standing on the floor. 85 kilograms of chocolate are applied to the sculpture and formed into the shape of a bodybuilder. When the chocolate sculpture is finished, the chocolate is melted away, revealing the bronze statue. The chocolate, therefore, serves as a human shell that disconnects from its inner self through time and eventually falls away. My final presentation was presented with two projectors facing into opposite directions. On one was the build-up shown, on the other was the melting process, accompanied with interviews from people all over the world, talking in their own language about the topic "Globalisation" and what it means for them. The speech by the artist was provided in Spanish, English, and German, in order to emphasize and do justice to the multicultural togetherness of our time.

THE PINK LADY
The Pink Lady Nostalgia. ... C’est une Poupée who says “Yes, yes, yeeessss!..” Who says Amen to whatever may come... A cuddly and consenting Doll... An unabashed doll... The Lady Heroine of all desires... The animated Object of all penchants, all sins... ... Sweetheart, come let us see if the Rose is rose/... A pic to capture that pink ... The wide-open diaphragm... The folds of the crimson robe, under the spotlights exactement... Petals of all colours, but roses are rose in all the gardens of the world, their buds like the diamonds of eternal pleasures... ... A Thousand and One Women... in ONE... The Synthesis is Bold, the Doll pumped up, the combinations multiple, the appearances deceiving...The Stone beneath the Flesh... Hard and cold... A polished and smooth Poupée de Marbre ... A Venus without her Fur... A shaven Sacher-Masoch... Not a hair left of Romanticism... A 2.0 Doll far from The Origin of the World... ... The body calibrated for stereotypical ardours... Unfussy tattoos, curls for artifice, silicone up to the gunwales, seams ready to split: The Pink Lady, Doll of the Quick Fuck… ... We would like her to speak... To pronounce words, sounds other than the conventional onomatopoeia of fawning pleasures... The Mmmm, the Aaaah, or the Ooooh... Letters that would form real words... No: nothing to be done, nothing to be said... ... A voiceless, unsmiling, soulless doll, her slits like bottomless pits, a humourless, joyless Doll... We will never see her heart or her feet, forever sealed in Carrara stone... A non-finito modern Galatea, off-putting her Pygmalion... The sculptor’s dream, his Ladies of yesteryear, his Marys full of grace and virtue, the Roses in bloom of his lost youth...

Bunter Hund III
Werkserie "Bunter Hund". Die rot, grün oder blau bemalt «Strichmännchen» aus Eschenholz vollführen übermütige Posen, machen den Handstand, stehen Kopf und schlagen Purzelbäume. Sie bestehen aus einer einzigen «verdrehten» Linie, die den Anschein erweckt, sich verselbständigt zu haben. «Bunter Hund» offenbart des Künstlers verschmitzte Seite, die auch bei der Kleinskulptur «Zwerg und Riese» Pate stand. Die Figuren sind im Schwung. Sie strotzen vor Lebensfreude. Ihre Leichtigkeit ist psychischer und zugleich physischer Natur.

Darüber hinaus gemahnen «Flow I bis IV» mit ihrer geriffelten Oberfläche an durch die Lüfte schwirrende schwarze Seile, die augenblicklich im schlängelnden Tanz erstarren.

Glücksfänger II
Eschenholz, geflammt Die Werkgruppe der «Glücksfänger» besteht aus verschiedenen amorphen Strukturen, die sich aus einer Vielzahl von «Zellen» zusammensetzen. In der Biologie würde man von Mehrzellern sprechen. Für den Künstler sind es Glücksfänger. Der Gedanke an indianische Traumfänger schwingt mit, wenn man bedenkt, dass diese ebenfalls eine mehrteilige, durchbrochene Binnenstruktur in Form eines grobmaschigen Netzes aufweisen. Die Glücksfänger sind Wandobjekte. Je nach Lichteinfall und Beschaffenheit des Hintergrundes ergibt sich ein wechselndes, kontrastreiches Schattenspiel.

FG 1
Edition von 15Stk FG ist die Abkürzung der Blume „Froschgoscherl“ (Löwenmaul). Die ersten Skulpturen wurden von ihren erotischen Farben und Formen inspiriert. Sperrholz-, Kunststoff- oder Metallstreifen werden unter Spannung miteinander verbunden (geleimt oder geschraubt), wodurch sie wodurch sie sich zu Kurven verformen. Löst man einen von dem anderen, verändert sich die Gesamtform. Die Objekte verformen sich durch ihr Eigengewicht und je nach dem wie herum man sie hängt. Die Objekte haben kein Oben und kein Unten und können beliebig herum gehängt werden, wodurch der Eindruck entsteht, als hinge immer wieder ein neues Objekt (Gesamtform) an der Wand, obwohl die Struktur immer die gleiche ist. Licht und Schatten spielen ebenfalls eine Hauptrolle, da enge Zwischenräume dunkle und weite Zwischenräume helle Flächen entstehen lassen. Farben unterstreichen die Formen und verstärken ihren Ausdruck. ________________________________ Edition of 15 pieces. The sculpture is dismountable and can be hanged in different directions. (It is hanged at the wall with a nail of specific length attached in the package) The sculpture is inspired by a flower called snapdragon. It is inspired by the flower´s erotic shape and colors. The visible structure of the wood gives an sensitive impression. The thin and sharp blue line gives structure and orientation. The objects are deformed by their own weight and depending on the direction they are hanged.
