* 1964 in Munich
The animal sculptures by Caroline Wagner (* 1964) are an expression of her direct visual experience. Exclusively committed to her artistic theme and free from fashionable influences, she seeks to sense the spirit of the animals. Her works are characterized by truthfulness and timeless beauty. Her marble sculpture "Swan" is a good example of this.
Caroline Wagner: “With the means of sculpture I try to restore the animals’ dignity. I don't want to create decoration, but monuments. In view of the responsibility for our environment, that is to say in particular towards animals, I consider my work to be a contribution to orientation and knowledge that can only have an effect on each individual. "
