Bronze sculpture details
Movement here as if while sleepwalking is depicted purely through the composition of the vertical and the curved line. The fiction of acting as if while asleep is intended to symbolize mastering things effortlessly. Objectively it is thus not a walk but a reaching for the stars, and who does not desire that, despite all our logical experiences?
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Even at an older age Franklin Pühn is still enormously creative. As a young man he completed an apprenticeship as a wood sculptor (Ausbildung als Holzbildhauer) in Erfurt, before he began studying sculpture at the Academy in Stuttgart under the tutelage of Professors Karl Hils and Otto Braun in 1948.
