Johannesburg (Sudáfrica), 1959
Dale Hellmann was introduced to a bronze sculpting course where he learnt all about the ‘lost wax’ process. It is here that he became convinced that I wanted sculpting to be more than a past time. His inspiration is in a continual process of flux and evolution which allows him the freedom to explore new ideas all the time. His focus has been people and trying to interpret them. His latest collection was produced under the theme of “Broken People” and has been shown in numerous galleries in South Africa as well as galleries in the UK and France. Hellmann has had a couple of exhibitions in Cape Town and in Geneva as well. His work has been bought by private collectors worldwide. His new work is a work in progress. The theme for this collection is “Sensual Woman”. He loves the grace the sensuality and the comfort of woman and I am hugely excited right now about the evolution of this collection.
