With this series of abstract sculptures, girls head #1, #2 and #3, I am interested in the line in space. This emerged gradually from my drawing practice, a detour that brought me back to the sculpture in a new way. This work is composed of many small steel plates, which I do not – as is usual with abstract steel sculptures – cut from new material, but from already twisted steel from the scrap metal pile. With this special method of mine, I find rhythm and movement in the sculptures.
The girls heads are the most elaborate and much less spontaneous than the other series of my works of scrap metal. I have thought about and worked on long and intensively every line, every angle, and every surface.
Girl’s head #2 has been sold and is seen here in cast iron.
