The Simple Expression of Complex Thought

Clare Taylor is a recent graduate from Camberwell College of Art. She frequently likes to tell people that she's from Greenland. This is not true.

Gerhard Demetz doesn’t sculpt happy children. He sculpts children with a far away look in their eyes, with an oddly grown up air around them. The pristine carving of the face is at odds with the rougher carving of the body, the gaps and holes left where pieces of wood don’t slot together perfectly. The choice of subject makes for an often uncomfortable experience for the viewer - prepubescent children with dark, unhappy faces - yet the sculptures are also dynamic, beautifully made and aesthetically appealing.
