Mario Dilitz is an Austrian sculptor who combines hyper-realistic techniques with abstract textures. On the one hand he manifests the contradictions occuring in human nature, on the other hand he knows to unite them in his work. Even his choice of material reveals these contradictions. His sculptures, most of them lifesized, are created out of high quality laminated wood. After a process of destruction and then construction the wood has reached a new form of stability, which wouldnʼt have been possible in its natural condition.
