Markus Wüste

The artist Markus Wüste sees himself primarily as a stone sculptor. In his work with the solid, heavy and resistant stone, he tries to always elicit the material and the paradox from the material: movement, dynamics and illusion.

The element of time is inscribed in the imperishable stone, in order to explore the relationship between sculpture and space, the installation and the surrounding moment. In the language of materials developed in the process, Wüste is not concerned with the perfection or the confusion of imitation, but with the appearance of things, the feeling for materiality, its recognition value and the atmospheric effect of the material in its form. The processing of the stone always reveals its surface and depth at the same time.
