Andreas Hamacher was born in 1967 in Trier / Germany, where he also lives and works. The work on his lyrically abstract work serie "HAPTIKONS" and "DEHISCES" begins at the scrap yards of the region of Trier with its varied technical possibilities. The scrap yards are a sort of outdoor studio for the steel sculptor. In the course of this, the tension field between the ruggedly repelling and the clearly smooth welcoming of the material is essential to the sculptor. His work is animated through the dialogue between geometry and nature and invite the viewer to feel and explore – to understand – the textures of the material as well the circumscribed space within its own borders and beyond.
