The visitors of the Skulpturenpark in Niederprüm are looking forward to an imaginative landscaped landscape on an open space of around 20,000 square meters.
With sensitivity and great naturalness, the brothers Hubert and Alfred Kruft have created a very individual exhibition frame for their art! Metal motifs, taken from nature and presented in nature. The brothers Kruft became famous through numerous prizes in national competitions and exhibitions; their works are among the top class of bronze and copper works today.
The exhibited sculptures show mainly life-size domestic birds such as eagles, aurochs, owls, partly cast in bronze, partly driven in copper. The small works are discovered by the visitor when visiting the exhibition space next to the studio: Life-size fishers are lovingly arranged in the open air. Time and again we see metal insects; Dragonflies that seem to float in the seeming lightness of the numerous ponds, butterflies as subtle space decoration and spiders, whose subtle charms of their bizarre appearance can not escape a visitor.
The designs and craftsmanship of the domestic animal world is probably oriented towards nature, but by no means purely naturalistic. Hubert and Alfred Kruft do not depict, they interpret in the reduced form, work out characteristic features of a species, make them slightly exaggerated, dominant.
An important theme of her work is the design of wells. Over 50 different variations of the fountains can be seen in the exhibition room. The attached park allows the play with the dimensions. Up to a height of 4.50 meters stands the well "spiral winds". Regardless of size, all fountains bear the distinctive manuscripts of the artists. Small cups, driven in copper, find a harmonious whole in a flowing line.
Handmade from solid copper, these fountains are attractive living accessories for the personal design of the room atmosphere and the heat-drying room climate! With soothing splashing water flows from bowl to bowl and is pumped up again by a quiet electric motor. In a small, individually managed operation even unusual customer requirements can be taken into account. Embedded in the artistic consultation, here the artist and living esthete form their own ideas for tasteful, extraordinary wall design, room cascade or garden decoration.
Open Jan 01, 2021 through Jan 31, 2022 from 10:00–17:00.
