Oskar Höfinger

Austrian, b. 1935

Biography

Trained in ceramics at a young age, the Austrian sculptor Oskar Höfinger has worked in a number of styles, from his early realism to expressionist works to later monumental experiments with Cubism in wood, stone, bronze, and stainless steel. Rigorously reducing sculpture to its absolute essentials, Höfinger creates angular, geometric forms that often reference the human body through their relationship to space—sometimes directly and other times simply through the arrangement of planes, as in his 2013 bronze Stark Naked.
