New York, NY. JanKossen Contemporary is pleased to present INSIGHT by Bruno W alpoth, on view from October 12th to November 18th, 2017. This will be the artist?s first solo show with the gallery. Bruno W alpoth is an Italian sculptor whose wooden, cardboard, and bronze sculptures are caught in a moment ? stagnant, while also exposed and carrying the impression of vulnerability. His sculptures are honest in appearance, silently asserting their presence and commanding the space around them. Though paralyzed, these forms continue to build on the meditative tone of the exhibition, immersing the observer in a sensitive encounter. W alpoth?s works range in medium from clay to bronze, but he shows a fondness for working with wood. His use of carving tools to carefully perfect details on such a delicate medium provide his sculptures with the appearance of skin-like properties. Bruno W alpoth was born in Bressanone, Italy in 1959. He was an apprentice to master carver Vicenzo Mussner at the age of 14 and studied under Hans Ladmer at The Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. He went on to teach at The Vocational School for Sculptors in Selva Val Gardena, Italy and founded the sculptor's group "Trisma" with W illy Verginer and W alter Moroder. He has exhibited at major institutions and is currently being shown at Schlossmediale Werdenberg, Trento, Langenzerdorf Museum, Austria, and Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Roverto, Italy.
