Portrait of a sculptor



In Jens Galschiot’s workshop in Odense sculptures are created in all sizes from ram's heads (5 x 5 mm) to fountains weighing thousands of kilos.

He usually expresses himself in naturalistic and organic forms. The influence of the Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí and the almost occult organic forms of the Jugendstil is striking. His expressions are often influenced by surreal distortions and archetypical imagination, centred on simple and almost banal, but strong symbolic images.
