Michal Furher creates figurative sculptures using bronze, metal wires, composite materials and industrial paints.
Working within the tradition of Pop Art, Fuhrer’s sculptures usually have round shapes and a smooth and glossy finish. At the same time, her sculptures touch upon delicate and sincere human moments within contemporary society. A sculpture of a man braving a jump into unknown waters, or attempting a graceful ballerina posture unfitting his round shape, serve as metaphors for human emotions, desires and conflicts.
Alongside these social observations, Fuhrer’s sculptures also draw upon a wide range of cultural references, from 19th century craftsmanship to Disney animation.
