About Dana Nachlinger

Dana studied art institute in Prague in 1994-98. Comes from the family with a long tradition of wood carvers and sculptors in Czech republic. Having grown up with a lineage of grandfathers and an uncle who were distinguished woodcarvers, Nachlinger has eagerly chosen to follow their practice, incorporating her own contemporary ideas to the craft. Inspired by all forms of art that lie beyond wood carving and sculptures, She now is the 4th generation of wood carvers. She was influenced and taught by her grandfather from early childhood. Nachlinger approaches solid slabs of wood with a creative outlook, transforming them into intricately detailed figures in the likeness of humans, animals and nature. Since 1999 she works as a free-lance sculptor and carver. She works mainly with wood of any kind. Dana creates amazing sculptures out of wood. With their detailed texture and shape, She is creating these sculptures with her talented hands, that show off the beauty in the grain of the wood.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Accepting (Kneeling abstract Seated Woman Sitting statues/statuettte)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Plamen and Peter, I am please to advise you both that `Acceptance` arrived yesterday afternoon and I unwrapped her in the early hours of this morning. She is without doubt the most beautiful item I have ever possessed. She is not a mere statue, she is sublime and a real presence in our lives already. Her slenderness and beauty is a sheer joy to behold. Thank you both and especially you Plamen for your creativity. You cannot possibly know just how much this beau... [Read more]
