Unique Oak Sculpture Signed by Jörg Pietschmann



Unique oak sculpture signed by Jörg Pietschmann Materials: Oak Measures: H 155 x W 50 x D 49 cm In Pietschmann’s sculptures, trees that for centuries were part of a landscape and founded in primordial forces tell stories inscribed in the memory of their fibres. The forms Jörg Pietschmann pares from ancient trees are extensive and astonish with their physical presence, a combination of elegance and primeval nature. Pietschmann’s sculptures are monuments to the trees from which they derive. Being endowed with the ruggedness of primeval matter gives them a veritable vitality: figures that appear to have grown into their sculptural form of their own accord. But Pietschmann’s tangibly present bodies have undergone a considerable degree of metamorphosis. In order to generate these unique tree specimens he examines the tree’s morphology and intrinsic inner map until the courses of its grain, of a curve, knots and cracks concur with his projections. The exploratory process is accompanied by constant modification, giving at the start of each new piece no more than an intimation of the figure that will later emerge. In their completion, Pietschmann’s sculptures once more become universal form. Jörg Pietschmann`s workshop is situated on the countryside close to Hamburg. He works with indigenous timber as oak, lime tree, beech, poplar, olive tree and maple felled by the wind or human hand, together with tropical timber found on his travels.
