Marble has a twist. At least for German sculptor Georg Scheele.
“Form for me means shaping a deliberate gesture from a spontaneous impulse, thus freezing the inner reality of a given moment – ideally encompassing all dimensions, the emotional, the intellectual and the spiritual. Shapes that arise from an inner stillness and lead back into tranquility,” says artist Georg Scheele.
Georg Scheele was born 1961. He is trained as a stonemason and began his career crafting marble sculptures over 30 years ago. When working with marble georg says, his aim is to explore the boundaries of possibility with both material and subject matter. He draws from inner images and spontaneity to try to convey and encompass all dimensions, the emotional, the intellectual and the spiritual. This is shown in a sensual movement of each piece as they twist and turn in harmony to create a beauty of their own. Georg has been living and working in Portugal since 1990, he has exhibited his work in Germany, Portugal, Sweden, Scotland, England and the USA and his pieces are in Collections worldwide.
