MANFRED HEINZE
 
Objects  1978–today (selection)
The sculptural work is only a small part of the work of Manfred Heinze.
His first object was created in 1978.
Many of his objects are rather small, the materials are different and the objects are very much shaped by the experiment. They mostly deal with the theme of architecture, interior architecture and landscape, but in contrast to his paintings, they do not follow an unique style. 
Some objects have parallels to the work group "Cells".

Corners (2018)  The built corner of a building or the corner of an object at an angle of 90 degrees is probably the most obvious indication of a human being's work. For only humans use this angle. In this aspect, this small detail distinguishes us from the structural or creative abilities of any other living being on earth.

Banana Cells (2017) - 07.509 - banana, acrylic hood, lumber, acrylic, lacquer, wooden base - 130 x 30 x 30 cm

Banana Cells (2017)  Just as boring as watching paint dry is watching bananas get stained and grow old. However, in the course of a month an astonishing change is slowly taking place: Black cells form on the skin, which grow together over time until the entire banana is black. Then follows a fresh banana to look at.
