The sculpture Gloria
by Christoph Freimann
Since 1977 assumed chaos and monochromacity are typical for the works of art painted in red by Christoph Freimann. The object appears chaotic and thus stands out intentionally from its environment. The combination of twelve angular sections allow the form of a constructive sculpture based on a strict ground plan. We associate a tree, a cactus or corals.
The German artist was born in Leipzig in 1940. After his studies at Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart he had been granted a scholarship for Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, in 1976 a scholarship from the the cultural circle of Bundesverband der Deutschen Industrie and from 1979 to 1980 a stage in Rome as well as a scholarship of the Kunstfonds Bonn foundation.
From 1987 to 1989 Freimann worked as a visiting professor at Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach/Main. Freimann is a member of Deutscher Künstlerbund. At present he is living and working in Stuttgart.
