Aron Demetz

“For years Aron Demetz has been focusing on the human figure, on contemporary characters which appear to be frozen in poses of antique portraiture and paralysed in bizarre postures. This realistic gallery, which very often displays children or adolescents, is highly distinguished because of its formal composure, while, at the same time, an atmosphere of melancholic meditation enshrouds the sculptures and makes them somehow classic and somehow stringently modern… To the spectator, they suggest a metamorphosis, the feeling of observing a being which is changing, which is ready to start a new life and exploit new possibilities. Through associations, images and symbols, these sculptures speak to our collective conscience. Fully aware of their own physicality and their physical and spiritual changes, the sculptures most often evoke the constant and meticulous research of the human “position”, a position which, on the one hand, has to be understood in a symbolic way (‘man’ understood as a symbol of power and at the same time of humility), but on the other, it has to be seen in a real, physical way – a position in a space with whom mankind has to interact daily.” – http://www.arondemetz.it/
