“Every child is an artist.
The problem is how to remain one once grown up.”

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Spanish painter & sculptor

Wolfgang Lamché’s modern works, his abstract stainless steel sculptures and bronzes impressively document that he is not merely an aesthete but also a friend of Nature.

As he sees it, his works that appear by their very nature to be so fundamentally dissimilar are not a contradiction but the result of two different energy sources which he taps into. His credo: anyone mastering the naturalistic aspect, can also aesthetically convey abstraction through reduction.

Indeed, there are very few artists who, like Lamché, work in two decidedly different genres and achieve equal success in both. Ingeniously simple in terms of shape – often weighing tons – yet nevertheless elegant, graceful and virtually vibrant, his works of art place unmistakable accents in front of or inside corporate buildings as well as in public and private spheres.
It is the fascination of exquisite materials, such as bronze, stainless steel and titanium, the calculated use of light and reflection as well as the experimentation with perspectives which attract and inspire Lamché time and again. His works of art take shape inside his head. He requires very few drawings. Concrete implementation is his calling.

Alongside his pronounced artistic talent, Lamché also distinguishes himself in terms of his specialized, technical and organizational skills which are called for in order to allow his ideas to be translated into real art. He also displays a degree of skill in promoting his art which could also be attributed to his open and uncomplicated personality.
Exhibitions all over the world – whether in Montreal, New York, Hong Kong or in many cities throughout Europe – and clients across the globe are an indication of the quality of his art.

Not entirely without cause are the names of Henry More, Max Bill or Berrocal associated with his works.As is the case with a great number of freelance artists, also Wolfgang Lamché has a strong woman at his side who gives him strength and moral support and brings stability and harmony to the life of an artist and his family.
Art fulfils his life – yet he still finds time to enjoy his family and pursue his various hobbies.
