Detailed description

Wall object "Italy Journey II"

There are only a few elements that Klaus Börner brings together in his unmistakable pictorial object - the sun, a tree, and a distant copse. And yet he succeeds in precisely depicting the character of a landscape with minimalist charm.

The trained goldsmith and sculptor works semi-sculptural elements of patinated bronze into a finely structured slate slab, which gives the object an astonishing spatial depth and, at the same time, as colour composition, captures the evening light of a progressing sunset most impressively. The colouring of the sun was based on a snakeskin jasper from the artist's collection.

Wall object made of slate and bronze. Unique piece, signed by the artist. Size 20 x 15 cm. Weight approx. 2.5 kg. With suspension device. Catalogue raisonné no. 450.

About Klaus Börner

Born in Hildesheim, Germany, in 1951, the goldsmith and sculptor Klaus Börner is a maverick – an artist who does not subscribe to the current and quickly forgotten art trends, but goes his own way, close to nature.

Börner uses mainly slate for his unmistakable objects. He combines the small rectangular slate panels with materials such as bronze, steel, brass and sapphires. They combine with the fine lines carved into the slate to create enchanting landscape impressions. The compositions consist of few pictorial elements such as trees or animals and thus leave a lot of room for imagination.
