Exhibition of sculptures by Rainer Lagermann on view at Ode to Art Contemporary Gallery
Standing Ground – 0712 Pablo – 2012. Stainless Steel, 56 x 30 x 157cm h.
SINGAPORE.- Ode to Art presents Rainer Lagermann’s exhibition from 18 July 2013 to 25 July 2013.

“PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, INTELLECTUAL, SPIRITUAL” comprises Rainer Lagemanns sculptures, expressing his fascination by the human body, the classic theme of artistic expression and struggle depicted in all shapes, materials and medium since the existence of mankind.

Rainer’s sculpture captures the human body in motion--a freeze frame of classic, timeless gestures and emotions.

The sculptures are both ethereal and concrete. The forms he creates are how one imagines a Nureyev or Baryshnikov would look in mid-flight.

Rainer uses hollow metal squares to sculpt the human form, creating works that elicit both the strength and delicacy of the body. Each square represents the trials and tribulations of life. The four corners are the intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual dimensions of human being.

His sculptures are the framework of the spirit and the image of the body. The hollow squares invite the viewer to interact with the sculptures and fill the open space with their own imagination.

The mixture of metal and open space adds an element of mystery and abstraction to the human form. This technique adds a spiritual dimension to the human shapes and forms and gives Rainer’s sculptures a universal quality.

With all of Rainer's sculptures there is a secondary layer of beauty, abstraction and mystery. When darkness falls and the lights come on, the exquisite shadows of form, squares, body and spirit cast themselves upon the walls creating a second sculpture of light and shadow.

"I choose to bronze plate the sculptures with a final finish of unpolished antique bronze, and the finish is galvanized with the whole sculpture dipped in Zinc to make it rust resistant, the texture reminds me of artifacts found after being hidden for centuries in the ground"- Rainer Lagemann

Rainer Lagemann, born in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1959, received his formal education at the FH Lippe University in Detmold, Germany, specializing in Design and Architecture.

Trained as an interior architect, Rainer Lagemann arrived to sculpture later in his life, but his unique treatment of material and subject matter earned him immediate international recognition.

Rainer’s work has been exhibited and sold in Canada, Singapore, Europe, both through private galleries and in over dozens of world-renowned art fairs.

Mr. Lagemann has moved to Miami in 2008 to become a part of its developing art scene.

His work has been instrumental in shaping Miami’s prestige in the art world.
