Livia C. Gondos
I was born in Vienna in 1958, went to school in Southern Germany and Woodstock, New York, studied mathematics, management and business administration in Tübingen and Eugene, Oregon. Since 1994 I live and work in Berlin.
I discovered sculpture at an early age, starting out with plasticine and clay. In the eighties I also used wire and plaster, in the nineties bronze and since 2000 I also work with sandstone and marble.
After graduating from universtity in mathematics, I had a long professional career in an insurance company, which inspired me to some of my works.
An even greater influence is bound to have come from mathematics, especially from topology, which is concerned with the property of spaces and objects, their relationship to each other and their continuuos transformation into each other.
