Elmar Trenkwalder

The Austrian artist Elmar Trenkwalder (b. 1959) turned to ceramics in 1986, a field that now plays a clearly dominant role in his work alongside painting and drawing. Trenkwalder is not so much a sculptor as a plastic artist. Using additive methods based on the artistic material clay, his work has reached dimensions and a degree of freedom that are limited only by the structural characteristics of the unfired material.
