CHRISTIAN VERGINER

Christian Verginer is considered one of the most valid and original expressionists in contemporary sculpture carvings.  His training began by attending the sculpture department of the art school of Ortisei, and then continued at the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara.

The subject chosen by the sculptor is the human figure, or rather, the human figure in its relations with other forms of life, with animals, nature, trees, or with various objects of the world.  The material used is limetree wood, which is left smooth and covered in details by brilliant and unexpectedly applied acrylic paint.  The titles of the works are funny and ironic. With respect to the long and high tradition of the Dolomites,  Verginer remains loyal to the skill and precision of wood carving,  while introducing modern, new and personal subject matter.
