Statement

At first impression metal shows itself to be the material of consistency and solidity, but it is also the material resistant to any changes. To create a sculpture from an unhewn block you have to employ a lot of energy and strength. This creative process is the continuous confrontation of the artist with the material.
The essence of my work is this dialogue with the material reaching and exceeding its own limits.
The experimented resistance – the resistance of the object – is an essential character of the significant experience of personal truth. With this exploration of the resistant opposite you can start a dialogue and experience yourself.




Vita

Hans Some *1968 Munich, Germany, had his first appeareance in public in the "Cafe Schuldstruktur" with several installations and readymades. 
Discovering the inexhaustible possibilities of metal design and expression in the studio of the sculptor Stefan Herzog, Munich, on the basis of techniques like casting and forging, which has left its indelible mark all the way throug to his most recent works.
 This motivated him to study from 1994-97 at Arts & Crafts School in Munich, where he passed the final project with distinction.
For over sixteen years he is living & working as a sculptor with his family near Alicante, Spain, where he installed his studio in 2000.


Participation in individual & collective exhibitions with work included in several public & private collections in Spain, Germany and the UK.
