Jürgen Brodwolf conceives of his tube figure, developed in 1959, as a sculptural form that can be altered in a way that makes the spiritual and mental states of human existence perceptible. The concentrated and poetic power of Brodwolf's pictorial works is deeply touching. A timelessness emanates from the depictions. They suggest an age that can hardly be grasped, nor do they say anything about their gender. Their fragmentary form leaves a lot of room for the interpreter. Through the integration of his figures into showcases and narrative contexts, the constellations found announce man's high-spirited striving for something higher ("Icarus") or man's confrontation with the limited existence in our world and with inevitable death, as this work entitled "Fallen Man" and created in 1971 makes clear. Depending on the background of his ideological and social view, the sensing viewer can search for his own meaningful interpretations and answers. "It is not anatomy that stands behind my modeling, but imagination." (Jürgen Brodwolf)
