Walter Dorsch describes what he sees: "La condition humaine." As a medium he uses anthropomorphic bronze or wooden figures, installations, digitally reworked photographs of characteristic scenes, short films with musical accompaniment, books and exhibitions with serious and humorous background.
"Many artists were medical doctors, many doctors developed into artists. Intensive occupation with patients as individuals would appear to sharpen awareness of what really counts in life."
The doctor, Walter Dorsch is in close contact with many and manifold people: children with radiant faces, happy parents, teenagers troubled by love; but he has also experienced the shadowy side of life: the engulfing of the individual in the mass, jealousy, arbitrariness, cowardice, marital warfare, etc.
The artist Walter Dorsch describes what he sees: "La condition humaine." As a medium, he uses anthropomorphic bronze or wooden figures, installations, digitally reworked photographs of characteristic scenes, short films with musical accompaniment, books and exhibitions with partly serious, partly humorous backgrounds (Art and Politics, Cabaret and Art).
ART@WORK is the keyword of his art. He describes human life with bronze figures, pictures, books and short films. Philosophic themes are important for his work as well as historic or social topics, especially the role of the individual in the crowd. ART@WORK invites the visitor to participate in creating art and to discuss philosophy, politics, history, psychology and arts. International exhibitions in Italy, USA, United Kingdom, France, Austria and Germany as well as publications in magazines are listed in the website www.walterdorsch.com
