Werner
Pokorny
Skulptur TurmV

Artist: Werner Pokorny


Werner Pokorny studied art and art history at the University of Karlsruhe and the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe. From 1998-2013 he worked as a professor at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart. His works are presented in numerous museums and public collections.

Wood and steel are the materials that make up his sculptures. Presence and abstraction, interplay of inside and outside and cavities or perforations characterize his work. With few motifs, such as house, the vessel or the circle, he manages to unfold the richness of his sculptural language. The house in particular as a frame of human existence, as a shelter and in the figurative sense as a body is the predominant element of his oeuvre.
