OLAF MENGERINGHAUSEN

Click here to edit subtitle

Olaf Mengeringhausen' s work encompasses sculptures and paintings with an intensive range of subject matter and styles.

He moved from Germany to New Zealand, bringing with him highly technical skills, a Master Technician Diploma and a Master of Teaching Diploma, Duesseldorf.
 
Mengeringhausen' s sculptures are drawn from the contemporary life and history of Europe and of New Zealand.
His sculptures often create an ongoing and powerful relationship between the work, the viewer and the space
they encompass.
Aesthetic and humor are defining characteristics of Mengeringhausen' s work.

This mix of cultures and aesthetics is only one part, evident in his work. In works such as " SPIRAL series "  Mengeringhausen twists his natural environment into playful and elegant, abstract sculptures.

Mengeringhausen’ s works are held in private collections
through-out the world.
