Boldi

BOLDI (1970) is constantly on the search for the ideal form and figure, pouring the body and its silhouette into its basic shape. His round, perfectly refined sculptures are the modern continuance of the Brancusi-tradition. “In our hurrying life – where an increasing goal is to let everything thrown away – for me it is the most important aim to let my sculptures be more and more of permanent, time-resistant value. That is why I am making my sculptures from the most valuable materials, from stone, from bronze and terracotta – and that is why it is so important for me, that the subjects of my sculptures are eternal, comprehensible for all centuries.” (BOLDI)
