Human Shapes: Bruno Walpoth’s Works

Sculptor Bruno Walpoth’s sculptures, made from limewood or walnut represent human figures as the result of their so-far experience. While his works quite realistic and can be described as being part of the uncanny, Walpoth’s works do not seek to recreate life – they are more humble than that; but they do explore life.

Every line of a sculpture appears as a detail of someone’s life, and ultimately, all the details combined compose the bigger picture of one’s experience, which is expressed through the body.

The choice of medium (wood) is also a very interesting and well-chosen one, as, as nature, humans are also a shape inhabited by much vibrations and intricate systems.
