Jewellery, Metalwork, Printmaking, Sculpture
Dates for the rest of the year:
Johannes von Stumm¹s unique combination of different materials has attracted public and critical acclaim in two decades of successful exhibitions in Britain, on the European Continent, in Asia and America. His startlingly original sculpture, which engages continually with risk and a defiance of accepted laws, joins steel, granite and glass to create abstract or reduced figurative works in which apparently conflicting materials exist in complex harmony. In thirty years of combining metal with glass and stone, von Stumm has expanded the boundaries of expression by fusing the strong and the fragile, the solid and the liquid, the dark and the transparent. His ‘Immaterial Figures¹, rooted in his work with glass, represent an embodiment of purity. Light streams through space. It is purity not in the subjective and limiting sense of morality, but as a freedom of spirit which transcends vanity and cynicism and other such obstacles to human aspiration. Here, light could be read literally as enlightenment.
