About Soul Gate 43

Sculptor Stefan Duerst hand forges steel to create uniquely lyrical abstract sculptures. Their dynamic form is an expression of the artist’s desire to capture a moment in time. This piece—a single horizontal ribbon of steel that appears to be in motion is powder coated in a shiny bold red. One of a series.

“As an artist, I am drawn to steel as a material for both its alchemical properties and the duality of its nature. It is heavy material and yet can be transformed into delicate, visual compositions filled with ethereal qualities.” Stefan Duerst

Born and raised in Munich, Germany Duerst apprenticed under a Master Blacksmith and worked in both metal design and fabrication. He completed his Masters in Metalwork with distinction. Stefan Duerst has exhibited throughout North America. His sculptures can be found in both private and public collections in Canada and the US.
