Ralf Ehmann

Ralf Ehmann studied sculpture and painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart from 1989 to 1996. Since then, he has also been involved in all these aspects: as a painter and printmaker, he knows how to express himself as well as a sculptor or modeller.

Ehmann often thinks in cycles; in ever new variations, he explores subjects that fascinate him. Hölderlin and Mörike were such subjects, so was the singer Victor Jara who was murdered by the Chilean military. Ehmann also illustrated literature or commented drawings of classics such as Schiller's Robbers.

Here, as in his sculptural work, he is a master of suggestion, of the little notes and the presentation of the brief moments. Yet his art can be described as 'idea art'; it wants to convey a familiar and simple understandable visual language. Ehmann's sculptural work revolves around the human theme, which he is able to display in all its vulnerable forms when he creates them out of raw granite.
