Creative process and inspiration of Manfred Hellweger:
In his works, the artist deals with questions of meaning and value in existence, the world and people.
His unmistakable sculptures are mainly made of wood and metal.
Cubes, strips, boards or nails are connected to each other using different techniques in such a way that a figurative or abstract form emerges that tapers downwards.
Through this process, Manfred Hellweger's sculptures seem to dissolve vertically and create a flowing dynamic. The artist refers here to the constant change of our time. Everything changes and evolves, nothing stays the same.
