I came across his artwork from this website which displayed many of his works. They are fabulously constructed and capture the viewer with a disquieting nature. The child figures are often missing sections or blocks out of them and yet still appear very realistic in shape. Their sad faces and the innocence of children is estranged with the dark, tortured and broken bodies they show. His art and info was taken from Gehard Demetz's website, here.
