About the artist
Playing with the forms and structures of nature and their effect on the viewer is the focus of my work.
The works, mainly modelled in plaster, appear like sensual beings caught in a frozen movement whose imagined continuation is left to the interpretation of the viewer.
The sculptures seem familiar and strange at the same time and thus invite us to reconsider our own patterns of perception.
Pe Hagen, Working as a visual artist in Düsseldorf since 2013.
Even during his training as a gilder in the Black Forest, he experimented with organic and biomorphic forms, which are now an essential stylistic element of his sculptures.
Playing with the forms and structures of nature and their effect on the viewer is the focus of my work. In the process, they are interpreted, alienated and placed in new contexts. It is not the copy but the transformation in the artistic process that makes my work.
The titles of the sculptures, partly mysterious, partly seemingly taken from everyday life and the banal, reinforce the feeling of taking part in a game whose rules the viewer still has to fathom...
