René
Dantes
Skulptur Negro

artist: René Dantes


René Dantes first studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna, but soon turned to sculpture because he was fascinated by the three-dimensionality. Continuity on the one hand, and slow yet steady change on the other, together with the tireless exploration of new ideas for form and design, are fixed constants in the work of René Dantes. In the development of his scultupres he walks a fine line between association and abstraction.
