About the artwork
Rainer shows us his ability to build sculptures that rethink the human form as a medium of artistic expression. While revealing a side of the sculpture, he conceals the other as half of the form melts into the wall. The artist includes deliberate empty spaces which give the composition levity - leading to the sculpture appearing as if it is swimming into the walls, in open defiance of the laws of gravity and physics. The diver and its delicately balanced form float effortlessly when suspended; although it possesses human features, it contains a strong spiritual essence.
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 ›
