The Brandenburg sculptor Knuth Seim makes small sculptures from stone and bronze. In 2013 he was awarded the Art Prize of the State of Brandenburg. Although Knuth Seim has now added bronze, wood and terracotta to his repertoire and experiments with these materials, stone was his access route to art. Apart from the variety of animal forms, playing with female figures and abstract shapes is an important aspect of his art.
After training as a stonemason and studying sculpture, a study trip to Senegal inspired a simple, reductionist style. Seim also designs wooden sculptures and objects, especially for playgrounds and school yards, sometimes working together with the pupils.
