Matthias Sieff

Matthias Sieff’s polychrome wood sculptures put in dialogue primitive iconography and contemporaneity.

Sculpture is a necessity for him, a personal language through which he recalls ancient stories, old traditions and craftsmanship.

His anthropomorphic figures are distinguished by their monumental appearance, which embody the timeless aesthetics of the ancient world (that of dolmens, of the Egyptian obelisks or the Moai of Easter Island..), the imposing presence (a feature they intimately took from the Dolomites, artist’s birthplace and home) and their bright colours that serves as a dress for the wooden bodies.  

A personal style that makes Sieff’s artworks always recognizable.
