Sculptures

In the 1960s, Stephan von Huene’s sculpture testified to his interest in the traditions of architecture and furniture manufacturing on the US West Coast, in particular the Greene Brothers. The same is true for the cultures of the Native American populations, as reflected for example in the “Totem Tone” sculptures. Characteristic are the materials wood and leather, technical precision in the production of these works, and the integration of the base into the sculptural form. Beginning in the mid-1960s, these features are characteristic as well of the sound and kinetic sculptures, through which he developed a fundamentally new conception of sculpture.
