Provenance: Stephen Friedman Gallery, London (label verso); Private Collection, BelgiumExhibition: Baden-Baden 2006 (Staatliche Kunsthalle), Duisburg 2006/2007 (Museum Küppersmühle), Salzburg 2007 (Museum der Moderne Mönchsberg), Stephan Balkenhol, exhib.cat., p.283, p.247 with coll.ill. (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).

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Wawa wood, painted, height approx. 166 cm.Provenance: Mai 36 Galerie, Luzern; Private Collection, GermanyThe face of the figure has been reworked by the artist in 2012. Eckhard Nordhofen on Stephan Balkenhol's sculptures:"Balkenhol gives the man a nose and a mouth, hitting exactly that fine line between expression and statuette. There is nothing abstract about it. Instead, there is normality, but not so much as something that is normative or might remind us of something normative.The man is neither thin nor fat. His waist is a bit rounded - the way people are when they are no longer young but not yet old. There is nothing flamboyant about him. He is presented in colours that do not force themselves onto us or become an issue in themselves. These colours are just part of him, as he would otherwise be colourless and would ultimately end up somewhere near monochrome classicism, genteel simplicity and quiet grandeur.The wood from which he has been carved has remained unsmoothed. Otherwise it might have ended up shining. It has been deliberately created to allow the two options of perception that were demonstrated most clearly by Rembrandt and the Impressionists. When we view their art at close quarters, we can see the impasto paint and the pigment surface. We feel we might still be able to smell the varnish. But if we then look at the work of art again from the right distance, everything suddenly falls into place. We begin to imagine space, light and life.This is precisely what happens with Balkenhol's figures. Close by we can see the crude traces of the chisel, so that we wonder how this impression of fierce workmanship can disappear so completely when we step back." (Eckhard Nordhofen, Stephan Balkenhol: Gestalt ohne Bedeutung, in: Andreas Franzke (ed.), Stephan Balkenhol, public, Die Skulpturen im öffentlichen Raum 1984-2008, pp.32/33.)

In a non-dominant culture a destructive activist is capable of analysis.A subject painted upside down is suitable for painting, because it is unsuitable as an object. I cannot say anything about the solidarity of depiction. There is no correction of the depiction in terms of right and wrong.My relationship towards the subject is arbitrary. The picture is methodically organised through an aggressive, dissonant reversal of ornamentation.Harmony begins to totter, and a further limit has been reached".(From: Detlev Gretenkort (ed.), Georg Baselitz, Gesammelte Schriften und Interviews, Munich 2011, p.60)

The present work is registered at the Calder Foundation, New York, under the archive number A12259.Provenance: Maeght Gallery, Paris; Serge de Bloe Gallery, Brussels„Cagey about his formal alliances, Calder showed with diverse groups without ever declaring himself a „member". Along with Miró and Arp, he could, in general terms, be classified a biomorphic-type abstractionist or Surrealist. That is, shapes and lines that are at once detached from representation yet inevitably relate to phenomena in the world make for the perfect conjunction of abstraction and Surrealism. Crucial to this synthesis is a tenet from abstraction that goes something like this: advanced works of art do not re-present anything at all but simply live in the world, as natural objects do. The completely independent and concrete existence of such things produce an in-the-moment sense of art, heretofore absent in other forms of work.
