Intro
Fritz Maierhofer, 1941, born in Vienna, Austria . Artist that lives and works in Vienna, studied a traditional Goldsmith Apprenticeship with Anton Heldwein, and has works at the following collections among others: Österreichisches Museum Für Angewandte Kunst, Vienna, Schmuckmuseum, Pforzheim, Victoria And Albert Museum, London, National Museum Of Scotland, Edinburgh, Art Gallery Of Western Australia, Perth.

Statement

For my latest work series „Mountains“, starting in 2013, I draw my inspiration from the Cottian Alps – dominated by the peak of Monviso - in Italy. Observing the daily changes oft he mountain peaks caused by light and wheather conditions led me to create drawings which later became brooches and objects in coloured paper. The most recent pieces are worked in metal with industrial enamel. The recurring theme is to visualize the flow between dimensions.
