The following photos show some of Christel Hartz's figures, taken out of the series "Livingstones".
In europe, Christel Hartz is a renowned artist. Her work is shown at many exhibitions and earned her
art-prizes such as the Euro-Doll which she won several times.
The figures shown are made of stoneware. They all are one-of-a-kinds.
Gorging rabbits move their lips very fast. Because their gaze is quite pointed while doing so, it looks like they try to secretly communicate something important. You never know who they are looking at.
Irritating in a similar way are these two stone-trolls. Their mouths bent in rabbit-like ways, mute, their glances not meeting, arms protectively crossed or retreatingly stretched backwards, they stand opposite to one another. What a communication!
Two figures out of the "Livingstones"-series, standing, with hair-adornments made out of natural materials. The complex painting enhancing the stone-character has been branded into the stoneware several times.
