Changing Shape

Herbert Golser
The sculptor Herbert Golser works with nature between the poles of the grown and the constructed. The interplay of naturally occurring and technical materials is essential for how his sculptures take shape, so that wood, stone, and metal quasi “come to bloom” in his works. In its three chapters—Tree, Rock, Transform—the book presents Golser’s astonishing work, including for the first time his works in public space as well. This is supplemented with texts by numerous authors who have accompanied his work over the past two decades.
