Georg Herold (b. 1947, Jena, Germany) lives and works in Cologne. Known for his large-scale anthropomorphic sculptures and ‘drawings’ made from bricks, wood, and other found materials, Herold has long been identified as a key influence on artists in Europe and beyond. Through his multifaceted oeuvre (which spans sculpture, installation, photography, painting and video), and his sustained concern with the disjunction between appearance and language, Herold has simultaneously assimilated and given shape to some of the key conceptual trends of recent decades.
