About the Artist - 26 more artworks

Thomas Junghans st. Graduated from the City Academy and the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht. Then at the Fachhochschule in Aachen. He makes sculptures in stone, wood and especially bronze. Like a master he leaves the materials in their value. His images often remain as timeless archetypes, with great primitive power. Many portraits in wood and bronze have long been at the heart of his oeuvre. Large sculptures are carved in wood and then cast in bronze. He paints the mother statues / originals and these remain in his own collection. Thomas Junghans and Siiri Spronken (daughter of Arthur Spronken) are an artist couple.

Thomas Junghans deliberately cultivates the practice of not overdoing something in his work. In his creations, Junghans maintains the materials in their primal form. With an affectionate eye for the unfinished nature, Junghans creates abstracted sculpted heads, which are earthy, harsh and tender at the same time.
