Guido Häfner

Guido Häfner was born in 1968 in Upper Franconia, Bavaria. His training as a precision mechanic was followed by studies at the Technical University of Munich. Häfner's sculptures reduce bodies and facial forms to essential elements. In doing so, the artist manages to depict eruptive elements of movement in a unique and everlasting way.

His "Archetypal Heads" create their own space within space through the perfect representation of three dimensions. This succeeds equally impressively both in enclosed spaces and in nature.

Häfner creates his sculptures, regardless of size (approx. 30 cm to several metres high) in two basic variants. Ground and polished stainless steel for indoor use, and corten steel for outdoor use, which, according to his own statement, allows the sculpture to "age gracefully".

His sculptures are in numerous collections. These include the art collection of the German Bundestag, the Berlin Foundation of Prussian Cultural Heritage, the Goethe Institute in Taiwan, Abu Dhabi and Sweden, and the Gutenberg Museum in Mainz. Furthermore, his works can be found in numerous public places.

Frank Teufel

Frank Teufel was born in Tuttlingen in 1966. After his apprenticeship as a stone sculptor, he attended the master school for stonemasons and stone sculptors in Mainz. He also completed studies at the Academy of Design in Ulm.

A new sculpture begins on a sheet of paper - with a drawing. Into these tension-laden lines, Frank Teufel shapes the stone, going to the limits of statics. In doing so, he creates a filigree lightness that subjectively contradicts the source material.

Lines enter into an exciting connection with each other or with themselves. They sometimes run concave - sometimes convex - sometimes unanimously parallel - sometimes in a pointed turning away from each other, only to carefully approach each other again later. In an inner dialogue with the sculptures, the viewer allows the daring play with gravity to take effect on him. With their reduction to clearly abstracted forms, the works invite the viewer's own interpretations, which is why Frank Teufel usually deliberately dispenses with explanatory titles. The surface structure of the sculptures resembles impressions and experiences that make each individual sculpture - each life - unique.
