Sculptor Luise Kimme (1939 – 2013) has left an art oeuvre that has developed in her own way, without consideration of the aesthetic fashions of the art market. Since 1979 Kimme had her own studio on the Caribbean island of Tobago, located near the coast of Venezuela, followed later by the Kimme Museum. In this deliberate seclusion from the Western art business she created her sculptures, whose central motif is the human figure.<br/> Because of her detached attitude to what was fashionable in sculpture in the West, her works did not receive too much attention in Germany for some time. Last year’s retrospective “The Sculptors, Düsseldorf. From 1945 to Today” of the Art Collection of Nordrhein-Westfalen was one of the first great Museum exhibitions in which Kimme took part. Now the Sculpture Park Waldfrieden presents her works in a solo exhibition. The round thirty wooden sculptures express the richness of the motifs of Luise’s art. Among the carved and mostly painted sculptures are representations of dancers and of everyday scenes as well as figures with religious or mythological reference. Common in her works is the unmistakable influence of the life and culture of Tobago, which Luise Kimme had not only made her country of choice, but also the theme of her Art.
