Harry Whitehorse International Wood Sculpture Festival
June 14 – 22, 2024

Michael Rofka

Michael Rofka (Laatzen, Germany) had a deep affinity for trees and the natural world as a child. He would look for and gather stones. At first he wanted to become a scientist and studied biochemistry, but he couldn’t see or experience nature. He therefore chose to enroll in a multidisciplinary academy to study fine arts. Painting and installations are included in his work, but sculpture has taken center stage. In more than 20 nations, he and his Ukrainian wife Anna, who is also an artist, have created stone and wood sculptures as well as land art pieces. While Michael doesn’t use figurative art in his creations, he nevertheless views art as a means of artistically exploring and comprehending nature.
