Detailed description

Sculpture "Bull" (1995), bronze

One can almost physically feel the stamping of the hooves, dust swirls up, hot breath seems to waft around the viewer: "I want to depict the essence of the animal more than the animal itself," says Dieter Finke. The sculptor masterfully reduces the cultural archetypal symbol, the bull, to its elementary structures.

Sculpture as ars mundi Exclusive Edition made of fine bronze, limited world edition of only 199 copies. Cast using the Lost-Wax-Process, finely polished, patinated, with signature and foundry mark. Size 68 x 29 cm.

About Dieter Finke

1939-2011 - Sculptor

Born in Berlin in 1939, Dieter Finke found his artistic expression already at an early age. From 1959 to 1965 he studied sculpture under Paul Dierkes and Renee Sintenis at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Berlin. Since then, he has constantly expanded and changed his creative approach to material and colour, form and space. His wood and bronze sculptures are reduced to the essential. This is especially evident in his filigree animal sculptures, where the shape is hinted at rather than filled in, leaving a space for the viewer's imagination.

Finke lived and worked alternately in Berlin and New York. His enormous creative power did not shy away from painting, drawings, picture objects and photo collages, resulting in an extensive oeuvre exhibited in famous galleries in Berlin, Hanover, Hamburg and New York.

Dieter Finke passed away in 2011.
