"Stephan Balkenhol"
2001-01-15 until 2001-04-15
Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea
Santiago, , ES Spain

His first retrospective show held in Spain includes a selection of works produced by Stephan Balkenhol (Fritzlar, Germany, 1957) since the early eighties. At that time he was completing his studies with teachers as Ulrich Rueckriem, while he began to explore the potential of wood as a material for sculpture, and the ways of turning figurative representation into an innovative expression ground.

His figures – men, women, dogs, lions, penguins, etc – open an on-going dialogue with their surroundings, wich are turned into an object of analysis, leading him to declare: Those figures interest me only when they involve their surrondings.
