The art of Demetz succeeds in tackling the instability of contemporary thought. According to Eccher: "The art of Aron Demetz is a disturbing tale, an elegant whisper". Aron Demetz, a young sculptor from the Italian Alto Adige (Süd Tyrol), uses the ancient craft of wood sculpture to produce art that is thoroughly contemporary.
Demetz is known not only for his superb skill and sophistication but also for the unusual characterization of his portraits: his disciplined, classic figures provoke disturbing, existential questions that gradually involve identity, inner life and religion, yet remain suspended in the undefined mood of what is not actually stated.
