Gehard Demetz

I came across the work of Gehard Demetz in 2007 when I stumbled upon a news article related to his child depiction of Adolf Hitler. The treatment and execution of his wooden sculptures are both startling and unique. Worth particular mention is his treatment of the construction, which is achieved using small blocks of wood, which intern are shaped to give sketchy, rough surfaces in contrast with the smooth polished flatter surfaces.
