Detailed description

Sculpture "Two Heads", bronze version

The artist, who was born in 1945 in Eben, Austria, has travelled from New York to South America and Asia. Before working as a freelance sculptor, he restored the large free sculptures in Vienna's Belvedere and Schönbrunn palaces. Through his exhibitions of sculptures, etchings, pastels and drawings in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich, Bologna, Milan, Paris, Geneva and Vienna, he has found many friends of his work throughout Europe.

His "double-headed" sculpture, whose smooth, rounded surface tempts the viewer to touch it, is reminiscent of the Roman god Janus, who was originally regarded as the guardian of the door. That is why he is depicted with a double face looking inwards and outwards. He became the god of the beginning and the end. The first month of the year, January is named after him. Total height 29 cm; length 15 cm, width 13 cm. Limited, numbered and signed. Edition in bronze. Edition of 300 copies.

About Günther Stimpfl

Günther Stimpfl's rise to the art elite began in Vienna. There he was a master student of Fritz Wotruba and Joannis Avramidis at the Academy of Fine Arts between 1964 and 1972. From 1972 to 1984, he attracted attention with designs for mobile wind and water objects. Since 1985, Günther Stimpfl has been working as a freelance sculptor.

His static-figurative large and small sculptures, which have attracted great attention in exhibitions in the art centres of Europe, are today highlights of important public and private collections.

Günther Stimpfl reflects the human need to express its spiritual world with visible symbols through sculptures that are modern and archaic. The weightless elegance of his impressive works of art – like the idols of lost cultures – stimulates the mind and imagination and fulfils the human longing for beauty that transcends time.
