Dietrich Klinge

Dietrich Klinge’s sculptures are completely reduced to the essence of vital human emotions, that are conveyed by strong stylisation: Limbs are prolonged or omitted. The facial expression is intensified by accentuation of the eyebrows, or the breasts of a female nude are protruding whereas the arms are left out. Klinge’s works show a conjunction of expressive creation, archaic and meditative value taking up the traditions of the classical modernism.
