Sculptures

Matthias Verginer was born in Bressanone, in the north of Italy. He studied Visual Arts and went on to study with his father, Willy Verginer, to make sculptures in wood according to his example.

Matthias Verginer creates works full of humour, which show an imagination that at first glance seems funny and ambiguous, but which above all hides sheer intelligence.

The images do more than charm and entertain us, they invite us to reflect on the mechanisms with which we perceive our reality. He explores both the joy and the pain of human existence. His works consist of an assembly of animals and human figures, realistic in their resemblance to reality, but absurd in their meaning.

The wood sculptures maintain their true shapes and colors, but the beauty comes from the confusing and mysterious character, which hides both surrealism and magical realism.
