About the Artist: Georg Dinkel
I had my first contact with polymer clay in the 1980s when I made product shots for FIMO. But it took me until 2011 to realize the possibilities of this material. My works combine medieval aesthetics with sociological and technological aspects, a good pinch of humour and a childlike playfulness. I create my own world which expresses my reflections on the use of modern technologies in the digital age. Because of its suppleness, tenderness and strength I prefer to work with Polymer Clay. The willingness to be changed in form, color and structure makes it a perfect medium for me to imitate the iconic works of medieval goldsmiths and silversmiths and to fill them with new content.
