Klinge Together

“Polyanthe” and “Grosser Pfubrub” by Dietrich Klinge

Location: Delmar Blvd (Between Kingsland & Leland Avenues), University City, MO, USA

Materials: Eremurus, liatris, sunflowers, sinuata statice, Banksia protea, craspedia, leucospermum protea, leucaderdron, eryngium, ti leaves, silver-dollar eucalyptus, scotch broom and palm-bud foliage.

Dietrich Klinge’s male and female sculptures are powerful, raw, organic and chiseled.  They are an interesting mix of voluptuousness and hard-edged masculinity.  “Polyanthe’s” floral tribute is full of texture and movement and is as monumental and strong as the scuplture itself.  The loops of palm foliage mimic the circle of her arms and is repeated in “Graser Pfubruls” floral embellishment.  Klinge’s male figure is all angles and sharp edges, so the tribalesque garland full of circles and rounded flower forms is an intersting contrast.

    Whoever you all are I am very moved by you guys act of kindness!!! I mean who does not love flowers and the way you guys or you (LOL) have made art out of flowers is amazing. I heard about your act of kindness on Tammy Holland’s blog and she took some great pictures of your work. This really restores my faith in mankind! Please keep up the wonderful work and I look forward to hearing about where you all will strike next. May the most high bless you above and beyond your wildest dreams!!!
