Thomas Schutte is Germany’s most important sculptor and one of the most significant artists working today.
He works figuratively as a sculptor and abstractly as a constructor of models.
His statues are in the tradition of public sculpture, however, he does not depict heroes, warriors, or kings, but rather figures undergoing hardship, waiting, possessing resistant dignity and mystery.
