 About Artist

1966 born in Salzburg, Austria
Lives & works in Ebenau, Austria

With his wooden heads, HABERPOINTNER does not create real copies but he plays with geometrical basic shapes and organic figures. The processes vary: he cuts down, burns, hacks, scratches, covers with wax or plump. However, the wooden base form remains the same. The artist aims to test all possibilities to work with wood while preserving its own character. The special relationship between sculptor and material becomes visible where HABERPOINTNER leaves the block of wood nearly untouched. The wooden structure, like annual growth rings, is accentuated and can have a significant effect on the work and its result.
