Walter Moroder’s life-size female forms possess timeless dignity and elegance. Static and solemn in their comportment, through their moulded antique forms they conjure up Romanesque religious works. At the same time, their minimalism makes them speak a language that is also markedly contemporary. Before returning to figurativeness, Walter Moroder also practiced abstractionism. His works appear delicate and fragile, archaic yet, at once, modern. But now he has begun to pierce smooth surfaces with perforations small and large, thus giving way to abstractionism once more.
