“My central topics are light and proportions, relating to natural principles…These insights thrill and inspire me. … Stainless steel and transparent, colored, fluorescent Perspex are my favorite material. My sculptures are not reduced projections or abstractions of the visible. They are the reality of the immaterial. Developed from universal, absolute terms the >open forms< lead to infinity.”

Mathematical rules and laws are always detectable in Hellmut Bruch’s works. His dimensions borrowed from the Fibonacci-sequence, the beauty of an isosceles triangle determines the measurements. The colored acrylic and the reflection of the cut edge make his works radiate, far beyond the immanent rules of harmony.
