‘In sich gekehrt’ by Ellen Welten-Louwers
Art present 2018
“Bronze and glass are two fundamentally different materials. Working with both materials is therefore very exciting and varied. Above all, it is great fun to combine the two.
‘In sich gekehrt’ is a female figure of inner and outer beauty. The sculpture follows the example of my favorite 1.80 meter bronze sculpture. It took me a lot of tests, examinations and samples to finally implement this small model with new material.” – Ellen Welten-Louwers
