Harald Pompl was born in 1952 in Nuremberg, Germany. He lives and works in Altdorf, near Nuremberg, Germany.
Harald Pompl casts colored synthetic resin, to which pigment has also been added, into panes which are then cut, shattered, or polished into form. These individual panes are then piled up along a central axis to create impressive object bodies and steles or are melted down again to form solid columns that reveal in only a rudimentary manner their original form as panes. The play of either day or artificial light in the juxtaposing colored discs creates a richness of exceptional color combinations and luminous color reflections in the space around. In another group of work Pompl pours the liquid resin into self-created forms and builds the volumes up to cubes and plates which are perfectly polished to create a shiny, shimmering surface.
In his most recent work Pompl pours the liquid colorful resin into self-created forms and builds the volumes up to cubes and plates which are perfectly polished to create a shiny, shimmering surface to catch the light.
