(different dimensions)London 2005 (Stephen Friedman Gallery), Stephan BalkenholThe exhibition curator Matthias Winzen explains the special aura of the artist's wooden figures:"Stephan Balkenhol's phenomenal sculptural ability is partly that he never completely subjects wood as a dead/live natural material to a process of sawing or cutting, that he never peels human figures totally smoothly and artistically out of their material, but that he leaves his figures close to Daphne - clearly as human images but without entirely avoiding the density of the solid material. The artist's intention to depict does not triumph over the material it requires [...] The appearance of a human figure out of the wood always remains an open issue for Balkenhol." (Matthias Winzen, Wo steht der Bildhauer?, in: Matthias Winzen (ed.), Stephan Balkenhol, Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden et al., Cologne 2006, p.32).
