Gehard Demetz is notorious for being really mysterious in the art world, a lot is not known about the man besides the fact that he can take ordinary wood and create extraordinary figures that drops the common man’s jaw. Born in 1972 in Italy, Demetz creates these sculptures of seemingly sad children.
"It seems that innocence was interrupted there and now it’s time for justice, for the revenge of the good. The missing wooden parts of the sculptures reveal the aching truth. That life may be at moments superficial and seemingly happy-go -lucky, but nobody can hide from the past, nobody can escape his ghosts. Gerald Demetz’s sculptures leave you defenseless. Addicted to darkness, you keep begging for more."
