Christiane Löhr’s sculptures are characterized by their unusual qualities and textures. The artist gathers her working material from nature following the course of the changing seasons - seed pods from various plants, burrs and even animal hair. These minute organic parts detached from their original context serve as modules for her intricate constructions reminiscent of geometric bodies. Without the aid of any other materials it is the supporting forces of a delicately balanced dynamic interplay of energies which exclusively come to the fore just as they do in nature. The objects are accompanied by an apparently random and self-evident effortlessness and yet at the same time are precisely planned and executed. Despite their beauty they neither lack decorative quality nor craftsmanship and certainly not in their salient spectacular appearance. Christiane Löhr is exhibiting her works, the majority of which have especially conceived for this exhibition, in the lower hall at the Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden.
