Profile image of Wolfgang SandtWolfgang Sandt, German artist with a love for Italy, works mainly with stone but also with wood and several other materials, integrating also objéts trouvées in his sculptures. His works are as well representational as non-figurative.

For many years he has been occupying himself with the theme of `fragility`, questioning the importance of seemingly unchanging values and realities. One result of this research are his `fragile stelae`, long, slender, elegant and always on the rim of breaking : `The artist always has to go to the extremes.`

Sculpture description:
House with a rounded Bottom like Rocking Chair, made from Palladio Limestone Scuulpture for sale (yes, the same stone all Palladio villas in the Veneto have been built with:-).

Balancing on the tip of a sandstone block seemingly in danger to fall down any moment.

In the middle of the longer side of the house an arched passage from one side to the other.

A seemingly simple yet thought provoking sculpture.
Artist's comments:
The major theme in my work is transformation, change, the lack of securities in seemingly secure places or situations.

A house is certainly one of the synonyms for security. "My home is my castle".

So I started to create a cycle of stone house sculptures. Yet what kind of houses are these?

Houses on wheels, mobile homes, ready to leave their position at any time. Heading for an unknown destiny. Houses with points of fracture and in all kinds of precarious situations. Houses without stable connection to the ground, on the edge of falling into an abyss...

And once again the seemingly secure is put to question, sometimes not without a wink of the eye.
