At the exhibition Shining in the light at the Mainz art gallery the "Friends" will also be on display.
It is once again a great pleasure for me to choose and put together the sculptures for the exhibition. Every time I try out new combinations and every time I'm thrilled anew. The sculptures are shown off so beautifully in the gallery spaces.
I will show many abstract bronze and brass sculptures Bronze is such a noble material and I love the many possibilities it offers. Every cast is different and every cast is an adventure for me.
New additions to the art exhibition in Mainz are colored lacquered works made of polymer gypsum. The luminosity of the colors is fascinating. With this material there will be much more to discover!
Will we meet at the vernissage?
Excerpt from the invitation to the exhibition by Christian Vahl:
„In her search for the poetic and essential, Wiebke Bader finds inspiration in nature. The organic forms and flowing lines of her mostly abstract sculptures complement each other to create an exciting harmony. The artist's joie de vivre is reflected in her work: shiny surfaces, opulent forms, playful and yet calm.
Her works are characterized by a sensuous materiality, fresh form dynamics and surprising size variability. Her works are said to have a speaking magic, a concentration, condensation and materialization of the deepest human moods, longings, hopes and feelings: life cast in form, which was abstracted from her and wants to be seen and experienced from all sides - similar to the figura serpentinata. With her poetic formal language, she has developed an artistic position that does not deny her femininity.”
