Wood and clay have a greater significance than the work of art.

Galería Elvira González is pleased to present the fifth solo exhibition of Adolfo Schlosser (Leitersdof, Austria, 1939 – Madrid, Spain 2004). Based in Spain for the last four decades of his life, Schlosser’s need for expression led him to explore different disciplines (literature, sculpture, painting, sound pieces…) and to perform art to study the active bond between soul and nature.

The exhibition traces the evolution of Adolfo Schlosser with more than forty works dated between 1973 and 2002, with installations, sculptures and works on paper. Schlosser’s practice shows his conception of nature as a living entity and not as a medium. His work has a clear reference to nature not only formally but also with the use of seaweed, stones, natural wax, straw and adobe as material.
