Lightshadow: Sculpture by Johannes von Stumm

19 April – 27 August | 10am – 5pm, every day (last entry 4.30pm)
The Cloisters, New College

It is the spiritual energy of a piece of art which counts, and nothing else. Johannes von Stumm

In forty years of combining metal with glass and stone, Johannes von Stumm has fused the light and the dark, the solid and the liquid, the opaque and the transparent, our strength and our fragility into incantations of a delicate balance. His ‘Immaterial Figures¹ are filled with light and darkness once again – the emptiness of the human form allowing it to be permeated by the whole universe around it. Emptiness becomes Fullness.

Johannes von Stumm served as President of the Royal Society of Sculptors, the Oxford Art Society and the Open Studio Scheme West Berkshire and North-Hampshire. He is a founding member of Sculpture Network (Europe).
