About the artist

BETWEEN SPACE AND MATTER

Since 1992, Stefanie Welk has primarily been working with the materials steel and wire, which she transforms into a plastic shape by bending, knotting, and welding. From her causal study of the representation of people, she expanded her work by dealing with the interaction between humans and space. The artistic perspective considers both the social as well as the metaphorical space that is characterised by movement and dynamics as much as it is by force fields and power lines.

In Stefanie Welk’s works, metal is thus also the light and air-permeable medium for spiritual currents from which their characters are imbued and that also radiate due to the powerful design language. Due to their delicate nature, many of the sculptures also appeared as drawings in the space that describe both their own volume as well as the surrounding field connect to it.

Contemporary issues of modern society, such as networking, upheaval, and the urge to always to grow are consistently recognised across the various work groups. Since 2004, Stefanie Welk has been dedicated to the public space, from which numerous large sculptures were created in order to enter into diverse correspondence due to their surface texture and dimensionality with existing lighting conditions, day and night.
