Joachim Kreitmair

What inspires your art practice?
The infinite variety and beauty of nature keeps triggering ideas that I then aim to translate into abstract form. Doing that I always try to provide an uplifting and exciting experience through the visual and emotional presence of my work.

What materials do you work in?
I am open to employ any material that feels right for the project. Predominantly I use mild steel, corten, stainless steel, bronze, copper and perspex.

Briefly describe your artwork for NZ Sculpture OnShore 2018. Unfolding was inspired by the notion that something long desired is on the way. The details of how it will come about are however yet unknown, hence a state of excited anticipation. The sphere depicts the something that is on the way. The various geometrical shapes are in the process of alignment to accommodate the event.

Where are the public most likely to see your artworks outside of NZ Sculpture OnShore? My work is represented on private properties in New Zealand, Germany, Netherlands, France, US.
