Bronze sculpture details
At a first glance it is just a bundle, confusion, head-laden, then clearly in focus, the inherent drive – rotor blades forming a wheel. Around them, wildly arranging themselves, sweeping, advancing forward, swinging, like rowers or windmill sails, are the arms. Absorbing and distributing the load, simultaneously exerting elasticity, accelerating, breaking away from the ground, compressing air, exerting a thrust, using the empty space, are the legs. What an energy field, an energy-filled force field!
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Wolfgang Knorr studied anatomical drawing at the Dresden Academy of the Arts (with Professor Bammes) from 1964 to 1966, followed by a course of studies in metal design and metal and wood sculpture at the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Halle (Saale).
