Sculptors telling stories and displaying their creations

Pine Lodge is proud to showcase the works of two of Italy’s most renowned figurative wood carvers

Aron Demetz, Gehard Demetz and Georg, the owner of the Pine Lodge Dolomites Dolomites go back a long way. They were childhood friends and have grown up together both physically and psychologically. Aron and Gehard developing their artistic vein and love of art and beautiful things. A common trait is their desire to try out a new direction, evolving, moving away from tradition to something new and unique. Aron and Gehard through their art and Georg and his wife Susanna in creating the first luxury chalet in Selva Gardena.
Within the youngest generation of figurative wood sculptors from the ladinic Grödental in South Tyrol Aron and Gehard Demetz are amongst the most adventurous protagonists who, more than others, go beyond well-worn traditions in terms of medium and content-iconography and have both garnered international success throughout their careers.

Aron has exhibited in many well-known galleries, including the prestigious Shanghai Art Museum as well as in Germany, Austria and Italy with the prestigious Biennale in Venice in 2009. In London, Aron continues to work with the Gazelli Art House in Dover Street, Mayfair. He is considered to be one of the most innovative and adventurous wood sculptors of his generation. He often goes beyond well-worn traditions in terms of medium and content-iconography, and is particularly regarded for his preoccupation with humanity’s closeness to nature.

Since his debut in 2005, Gehard Demetz has been invited to exhibit at the distinguished Jack Shainman Gallery in New York, as well as museums and galleries in Spain, Germany and Korea just to mention a few. He has also been commissioned to create monumental sculptors for collectors from around the world. Gehard is admired for his ability to combine his incredible craftsmanship with subject matter that is new and appealing to contemporary viewers. His sculptures are admired for their juxtaposition of finely-polished parts alongside rough and sketchy surfaces; this particular construction and treatment render his sculptures absolutely unique in the domain of contemporary wood sculpture.

Pine lodge also displays works of Christian Stl and Sara Welponer two other talented artists from the area.
Guests staying at the Lodge will have the occasion to meet one or more of the artists as well as visit a workshop.
