RRP  $90.00 $68.95
Contemporary sculptor Aron Demetz uses traditional techniques to create electrifying pieces in conversation with works of antiquity. Working primarily in wood, and specifically with basswood, cedarwood and sequoia, Aron Demetz uses this traditional material to highlight man's relationship to nature. This volume compares Demetz's works with classical sculpture, opening a fascinating dialogue between modern and ancient forms and techniques. Hailing from Northern Italy, Demetz employs regional 17th-century woodcarving techniques in his figurative works. He updates those techniques by layering his sculptures with foils or resin or by charring the artworks which powerfully alter the original wood in ways that are both haunting and familiar. This volume, complete with beautiful reproductions and scholarly essays, offers an in-depth look into Demetz's oeuvre. AUTHORS: Alessandro Romanini is Professor at the Accademia de Belle Arti in Ferrara, Italy. Gunther Oberhollenzer is Curator at the Landesgalerie Niederosterreich in Krems, Austria. SELLING POINTS: Aron Demetz is an Italian sculptor who primarily works in wood. This book shows Demetz's work from 1990s to today. 120 colour images
