The artist Peter Hermann and one of his works

Peter Hermann

Peter Hermann (born in 1962 in Bietigheim, Germany) initially completed an apprenticeship as a stonemason, which imparted traditional sculpting techniques to him. During his studies at the University of the Arts in Bremen, Germany, he developed a deep appreciation for working freely. Due to the many possibilities, he discovered wood and bronze as the materials for his works.

Hermann dedicates his sculptures to the human image. These sculptures have a steadfast, grounded character and are often accompanied by various animals, such as fish, owls or everyday objects. The figures themselves are reduced to the essentials, devoid of grand gestures; they gaze into the world, yet their gaze is simultaneously directed inwards. This gives them a quiet presence and something particularly dignified.
