Jürgen Heinz works with steel.
His objects are reduced and concentrated, puristic and muscular. Always expressed in a clear design style with an elegance of texture. The viewer takes over the subtle pulse of the sculpture and enters a contemplative state of perception in which he exposes himself to the visual musicality and lyrical power of the material.
The artist expertly plays with weight and form, harmony and contrast, gravity and weightlessness. By presenting heavy steel as a flexible mass, Jürgen Heinz has, as it were, overcome the nature of the material and added a new dimension to it, turning "Heavy Metal" into delicate, sophisticated chamber music. His objects are top-heavy without losing their heads. He creates expressive symbols of tension and liberating energy. The metal sculptor trusts the viewer's desire and ability to develop the given dynamic movement in his imagination. Jürgen Heinz's Moving Sculptures communicate with the audience, touch, captivate, and challenge them to act.
The MOVING SCULPTURES by Jürgen Heinz communicate with the viewer, touch, beguile and call to action.
