About

Comedy and Tragedy of the Animal, marble sculpture by Tom von Kaenel 2019 Dimensions: W 32 x D 9 x H 50 cm Materials: Naxian Marble All the artworks of Tom von Kaenel are unique, handcrafted by himself. The stones all come from the surrounding marble quarries of the island. The Naxian marble is of white, grey or yellow-brown color, its structure is crystalline. No measuring instruments other than compasses and scales are used in the production of an object. The eye decides on the final shape. The crystalline surfaces are shimmering. This gives the object a unique liveliness. Tom von Kaenel, sculptor and painter, was born in Switzerland in 1961. Already in his early childhood he was deeply devoted to art. His desire to bring beauty to the world is Tom von Kaenel’s inspiration, drive and source for the creation of his works. Already during his training as a technical draughtsman and later as a teacher of pictorial design, he devoted himself to painting and three-dimensional work. Tom von Kaenel has exhibited his work in various solo and group exhibitions. For seven years he was represented by Galerie Ute Barth in Zurich. Today Tom von Kaenel lives and works on the island of Naxos. Everything in his environment inspires and shapes his work. He creates objects and sculptures out of Naxian marble in craftsmanship liveliness and timeless beauty.
