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).

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...

“The shadow of Orpheus and Eurydice”
This is a unique work. © Protected by copyright. This sculpture is part of a series of sculptures that take sequences from the narrative context of legends of ancient Greek civilization and sculpt the result of my imagination in a new way of seeing in the modern era, different, sometimes suggesting movement in the process of metamorphosis. The ancient Greeks understood that all human dramas revolve around the ubiquitous and inevitable experience of loss. Greek mythology revolves around this essential paradox of human life. Our time is limited, our control is limited and from this is born the great emotion of human existence. We love intensely, because we know that our mastery is weak. The love story of Orpheus and Eurydice exemplifies this principle in all its heartbreaking beauty. According to legend, Eurydice, the wife of Orpheus, dies at their wedding being bitten by a snake. Orpheus prays to the gods to allow him to save her, descending into hell to bring Eurydice back to life. The gods allow him to try, but on one condition - he does not have to look back at his wife who is following him. Orpheus respected this condition until the threshold of hell; but when he was ready to cross the fatal frontier, driven by the fear and impatience of love, he looked back. At that moment, the gods are faithful to their cruel promise, and Eurydice is pulled back into darkness and thus loses his wife a second time. The despair caused by the final loss of Eurydice made Orpheus despise and insult the women of Thrace. Eventually, exasperated, they retaliated by tearing him to pieces, prey to the ecstasy specific to bahic orgies. After his death, the shadow of Orpheus descends underground, into hell, he finds Eurydice, “Then lovingly they wandered side by side/ or he would follow when she chose to lead/ or at another time he walked in front/ looking back, safely,—at Eurydice.”, (Ovid, in "Metamorphoses", the eleventh book). This last passage is the theme of my sculpture: when Orpheus turns his head and looks at Eurydice without fear because the gods could no longer punish him. I sculpted the two characters in unusual shapes because they are both in a dreamlike, unreal environment, in eternity, he is a shadow and she is an illusion. I sculpted the lower half of Orpheus in bas-relief, going through the strange place of hell and the upper part of the body in three dimensions. I sculpted Eurydice with her body shape in the negative. Video: https://youtu.be/9oX3aWzc-2A

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...

Saugetier
Saugetier is an original of the sculpture series “organic media sculptures” Broken electric appliances - the wired plastic debris of our technological civilization - are merging with organic waste material - the eternally renewing biomass of natural cycles. The inevitable digital screen of the 21st century is implanted in this indecipherable object trouve, the screen again is conquered by the moving image of the eternal flow of life’s basic substance- water, in all its formal variations, breathing in and out as the universal life force expanding and contracting. In the age of the Antropozen, man-made artefacts have irreversibly penetrated and started to mutilate the earth’s biospheres, while plastic waste, Elektrosmog and sewage are poisoning our natural world, nature starts to actively integrate the invasive materials in its eternal scheme of evolving life- new imaginary hybrid species emerge — with technological corses, digital hearts and organic skins…

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.

Hydratoaster
Hydratoaster ist ein Original der Skulpturenreihe „Organische Medienskulpturen". Defekte Elektrogeräte - die verdrahteten Plastiktrümmer unserer technologischen Zivilisation - verschmelzen mit organischem Abfallmaterial - der sich ewig erneuernden Biomasse natürlicher Kreisläufe. Der unvermeidliche digitale Bildschirm des 21. Jahrhunderts ist in dieses nicht entzifferbare Objekt eingepflanzt. Der Bildschirm wird wieder von dem bewegten Bild des ewigen Flusses, der Grundsubstanz des Lebens erobert - Wasser in all seinen formalen Variationen, welches als universelles Leben ein- und ausatmet, Kraft ausdehnt und zusammenzieht. Im Zeitalter der Anthropozän sind nicht-organische Artefakte irreversibel in die Biosphären der Erde eingedrungen und haben begonnen 30diese zu verstümmeln. Während Plastikmüll, Elektrosmog und Abwasser unsere natürliche Welt vergiften, beginnt die Natur, die invasiven Materialien aktiv in ihr ewiges Schema des sich entwickelnden Lebens zu integrieren - Neue imaginäre Hybridarten entstehen - mit technologischen Pferden, digitalen Herzen und organischen Häuten ...
