About the artwork
Rainer Lagemann depicts a figure in motion, sprinting towards an unknown destination. To the artist, whether athletes are professionals or amateurs, they have to possess both physical and mental strength, speed and the tenacity to endure hardship. Using small hollow steel squares, he depicts the toned curves of the human body, turning steel into flesh with delicate detail and transience that transcends the limits of its material. The artist produces a freeze-frame of powerful gestures and emotions that demonstrate the velocity of human movement, through his contemporary abstraction and his unconventional mediums and technique.
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 ›
