Herbert Golser | The Soul of the Material
gallery rosenfeld is pleased to host Herbert Golser’s second solo exhibition, entitled ‘The Soul of the Material’.
Golser sculpts with both marble and wood. His methodology for both is strikingly similar, reducing the mass of the material to its most fragile inner core. On this occasion, we shall be showing his sculptures in wood. His sculptures demonstrate the artist’s great technical ability as well as his sensitivity to his material and the seemingly endless possibilities he sees in it.
Golser’s home is a small village in the midst of forests and woods which provide him with his raw material. Being able to source his material from his immediate surroundings makes us aware to what degree our ‘big city’ existences have removed us from the umbilical relationship people have when they live in close proximity to nature. A hard-backed monograph entitled ‘formwandeln’ (‘changing shape’) curated by the artist and published by the German publishing house KERBER traces the artist’s overall career and will be available to purchase from the gallery.
