WENTRUP, Berlin, Germany
WENTRUP is pleased to announce the representation of THOMAS GRÜNFELD.
The restless world of Thomas Grünfeld expresses itself through mixed media which include sculpture, collages and installations: the art of Thomas Grünfeld rise mixed feelings in the viewer about what seems familiar and what seems completely artificial and among what appears to be natural and simultaneously extremely unnatural: this induces in the spectator a yes/no reaction when looking at his works.
Thomas Grünfeld was born in 1956 in Leverkusen, Germany. He currently lives and works in Cologne, Germany. Since 2004 Thomas Grünfeld holds a professorship for sculpture at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf.
