About Lotte Thuenker

Lotte Thuenker is one of the international artists that work in Pietrasanta´s marble sculpture studios. She was born in Bonn, she studied in Berlin – and then worked in – architecture. Her works, sculpted in marble, lime stone and onyx, seem at once light and without gravity – and also as if they are in motion, ultimately finding their equilibrium in a single point. She says she finds her inspiration `in the movement of water, the hulls of boats and in the shipwrecks sanded by the sea, as well as in the four elements, and in the animal and plant world, like in fossils and seeds.´ In her non-figurative pieces, which she produces according to canons of artisanal craft, Lotte plays with line and plane. Spirals, ellipses, circles and parabolic shapes emerge and are re-integrated into the whole.

Artist Statement of Lotte Thuenker

Shell and cochlea being washed by the water
Ammonite becoming manifest in stone
Boat and skiff dancing on the waves
Fish and sea urchin nibbling at the coral reef
Seed capsule and leaf swinging in the wind
Song and poem sounding in music.
Finding balance and maintaining equilibrium
Searching for the centre of gravity and remaining upright
Establishing point of view and creating a base
Deciding lines and expanding planes
Turning spirals and bending parabolic curves
Pulling ellipses and defining sweeps
Digging caves and creating views
Curving levels and leaving traces of carving
Encouraging movements and finding tranquility.
Touching and handling
Looking and seeing
Sensing and feeling
Light passes through stone –

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
