“The quiet sensual magnetism of Helga Natz’s sculptures
is actually based on their totality of material,
colour and form. They update the old theme of shell and
kernel, and transform it anew by having the kernel form
and consolidate itself from out of and within the shell.
What distinguishes these constructs is their absolute
self-evidence, even though they hardly correspond to a
familiar form. It was Kandinsky who gave the term ‘inner
necessity’ its emphatic note. Even without Kandinsky’s
implications, Natz’s best sculptures have something of
that necessity. Each sculpture finds itself in the course of
its genesis, seeking and finding a balance between
working process and definition, material execution and
artefact, experiment and achievement.”
