About the artwork
German artist Rainer Lagemann concentrates on the human body in his artistic process, as a modern interpretation of the classic art of sculpture. A figure appears to be scaling a surface, climbing to reach an unknown point. Through his skilful welding of small hollow steel squares, Rainer displays the natural contours of the human form with astounding clarity. The artist creates powerful visual poetry, by simultaneously conveying both the strength and grace of the body and its movements through his dynamic sculptures. The hollow squares strip away distractions, leaving a powerful vision that encapsulates beauty, abstraction and mystery.
About the artist
Born in Dusseldorf, Germany, Rainer Lagemann has lived in San Francisco Bay Area since 1988. Today Lagemann resides in Miami, where he creates modern metal sculptures from small steel squares, welding them into modern interpretations of the human body or abstract variations of contemporary sculptures. Trained as an interior architect, Lagemann arrived to sculpture later in his life, but his unique treatment of material and subject matter earned him immediate international recognition. Rainer’s works have been exhibited around the world, including Canada, Singapore, Europe, and dozens of world-renowned art fairs, and are also part of prestigious private and corporate collectionsGo to Rainer Lagemann's profile ›
