Georg Scheele

German sculptor Georg Scheele makes marble appear weightless with his twisting stone sculptures.

“Form for me means shaping a deliberate gesture from a spontaneous impulse, thus freezing the inner reality of a given moment.”Inspired by themes of the body, soul and the inner-exterior connection, Scheele – a trained stone mason currently based in Portugal – began working with marble over 30 years ago, and has since been exhibited across Europe and the USA. Speaking of the intention behind his work, the artist states, “Form for me means shaping a deliberate gesture from a spontaneous impulse, thus freezing the inner reality of a given moment – ideally encompassing all dimensions, the emotional, the intellectual and the spiritual. Shapes that arise from an inner stillness and lead back into tranquility.”
