Wood Sculptures by Willy Verginer

The sculptures and installations of Willy Verginer are estranged and introduce the viewer to a whole new dimension of magic suspension. Verginer develops an original and unique visual language that combines painting with the art of sculpting. Beginning with traditional wood work as it is practiced in his hometown he slowly detached himself from conventional schemes and began following his own style. His sculptures radiate majesty and yet seem to be fragile. While moving between strong and delicate nuances, Verginer manages to create and gives the sculptures a high emotional quality and at the same time wrests their anonymity. By doing this he communicates through the sculpture and unfolds a new dimension of communication between the artwork and the viewer. Artist Willy Verginer lives and works in a small town called Ortisei in South Tyrol, Italy. His figurative sculptures are carved from solid pieces of lindenwood and often painted with acrylic or accompanied by additional materials. Several of his more recent works as part of a series called Human Nature were on exhibition atGalerie Majke Hüsstege earlier this year and you can see much more of his work on his website.
