Pleased to meet you #9, 2021
Text by Daniel S. Palmer, interview between Jeanne Brun and Stefan Rinck and conversation between Jeremy Strick and Stefan Rinck
What could be more fitting than to present a sculptor of stone as a rock star, in keeping with the vocation of our luxury fanzine? Stefan Rinck gives birth to creatures that surge forth from the past or have escaped from the future, frightfully endearing and deliciously diabolical. All the oxymorons in literature would not suffice to describe the hybridity of Rinck’s characters, upright or on all fours, clad in hair or scales. Firmly anchored to the ground, these cute and playful sculptures seem as light as air despite their weight in stone. Reflecting their creator, massive as a mountain, yet soft as the morning dew. In the realm of stone, Rinck rocks! “Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name: Stefan Rinck.”
