Gerda Frömel

Evolving Practice

As visitors make their way through the Gerda Frömel: A Retrospective exhibition, each room guides them through the evolution of Frömel’s career, starting with her early works and partial reconstructions of her solo exhibitions, and leading to her public commissions and larger-scale later works.

During the nearly two decades in which she worked, Frömel demonstrated a wide range of skills and talents, equally comfortable with sculpting, modelling and carving. At times, she also exhibited her pencil drawings, revealing yet another layer to her constantly evolving practice. The subjects of her work was just as varied, encompassing animal studies, portraits, nature and architecture.

Frömel's early career is marked by the creation of a number of devotional objects made for Christian churches. These include stained-glass windows, crosses, tabernacles and other objects in enamel and other materials. (Stained Glass.)
