• The depiction of man and the whole range of his characteristics plays a key role in Stephan Balkenhol's oeuvre.
• In this work the artist sees the rose as a symbol for life: just as the beautiful yet thorny plant with its different stages of growth and development, life is also subject to constant change and contradictions.
• A monumental 4 meter tall version of this bronze is on public display in Neuss.
• In 2020/21 the Lehmbruck-Museum in Duisburg honored the artist with a comprehensive exhibition
.

"Giacometti showed us that smaller works can be a lot more monumental that big works, as the special spatial effect kicks in. The sculpture fills air and space with its image. I made the xperience that a small figure has a magical power of attraction from a distance, so that we involuntarily rest our gaze on it and feel attracted. [..] The sculpture's strong physical presence lets the observer feel physicalnees a lot more consciously."
Stephan Balkenhol in an interview with Judith Elisabeth Weiss, in: Kunstforum, vol. 225, Obsessionen I, 2014, pp. 188 f.

Called up: December 10, 2021 - ca. 16.06 h +/- 20 min.
