Uwe Pfaff


Uwe has increasingly turned his attention, experimenting with materials, scale and format. He makes the pieces by taking a torch to substantial steel plates and cutting shapes from them. Complex filligrees describe the simple form of a head or a figure, and, just as their precise nature recalls Uwe’s training as a draughtsman, so too does their agitation remind one of his restlessness. He invokes mythical archetypes like humans, animals, tools, elements and various hybrids of these.
