Born 1955 Karlsruhe, lives and works in Bruchsal.
Ensemble of four natural stones with drilled labyrinth drawing, two specimens of red sandstone, one each of grey and white granite. Verso respectively laterally monogrammed each.
No less than four labyrinth boulders invite the viewer to identify the main paths with sharpened senses as well as powers of observation and not to be led astray. The labyrinths are filigree engraved in erratic boulders from the Murg Valley and thus create a connection between nature as the creator of the pebbles, which have been rounded by water and friction over endless times, and the artist, who inscribes a meandering search game on them with precise mathematical calculation. Since 2006, Wagner has devoted himself to the thematic complex of labyrinths, which he approaches in different ways. The boulders, offered here as an ensemble, are each unique, intended for wall mounting and can also stand on their own.
