MARGARETE ADLER

The combination of hyperrealism and baroque beauty.

Margarete Adler (*1967 in Greifswald, Germany) is a German sculptor who lives and works in Berlin. She combines opposing concepts and forms of expression, combining baroque beauty and contemporary hyperrealism. In the cycle “Mother´s Love” Margarete Adler devotes herself to the often denied ‘other’ side of the eponymous topos. Like any love, mother´s love is ambivalent, subordinated to the principle of “as well as”. It describes injuries, but also a process of healing. Her cycle comprises a total of six sculptures, from infant to old woman, or also: from being a daughter to being a mother.

Adler also technically combines the traditional with the modern: her sculptures are first modulated by hand in clay according to the old master sculpting traditions and then cast in polyurethane over a silicone impression. The paint is done by hand.

At first glance, the anatomical precision and the perfect beauty of the sculptures catch the eye. At second glance, however, one notices the cracks or seams. Contradictions in the outer beauty refer to unnoticed worlds of feeling inside and lead the viewer into a previously unrecognizable depth. In doing so, the artist questions social regulaeries, role models and traditions and confronts the viewer with his own feelings.

In 2020, she decided to devote herself entirely to creating art. The first exhibition of her cycle "Mother´s Love" took place in 2021 in the gallery AOA;87. In the same year, she was shown for the first time during the Art Basel week in Miami. Her works are already in collections such as Morgen & Stern Collection, Germany, Sberbank Collection, Russia, Buddenbrookhaus Collection, Germany or in various private collections.
