Bronze sculpture details
It is notably women that dominate my figurative sculptures. Most of them are very feminine women in exceedingly womanly forms, in sensuous corpulence, or equally curvaceous goddesses of the ancient world. I model them out of the soft and easily workable medium of clay. Frequently, I also have them cast in bronze. But slim women are also included in my oeuvre. Here the woman is to be seen as a sensitive and fragile figure, often as a torso. Her impressionistically roughened surface reveals countless cracks and scars, which evoke a very painful physical experience. Being an artist means: encountering the Creator powerfully with your own attempts at creation. (Ponten)
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Hilla Wolf-Wagner was born in Schleswig-Holstein, her work however, is dominated by the southern flair.
