NY-city Torso



 

Giger was so impressed by his visit to New York that he created a series of paintings of this city. 
 
1982 a Portfolio was published with five lithos. The "NY Torso" is one exemplare of this portfolio and the begin from my Giger collection

 Baphomet

 




  

This rare expressive print was published in 1976
 
A similar work has been used with good reason for the title page of "Giger's Necronomicon"
 

Title: Baphomet     year: 1976

Exemplarnumber: 94

edition: 150

 

 

    

"lord of the Rings II"

   

inspired by the "Lord of the rings"  epic Giger created in the mid-1970s some works about it.

The print shown here ( published in 1975 with 99 copies )  shows a typical of Giger biomechanical landscape,

in which biological elements with technology seem to merge.

As a world in which nature take place over a long forgotten technology.

A very expressive and impressive work

 

 Titel: lord of the rings II

  year: 1975

edition: 99

number: 68

 

 

"Biomechanoid70"

 

Au

What characterizes Giger art, are the "Biomechanoid" created by him": humanoid beings connected with machines.

Areas of biological and technical elements form an inseparable symbiosis at this Biomechanoid.

A large and very early print with this "biomechanoiden" is the 1970  published  "Biomechanoid70", in a edition with 100 copys.

For me, the "biomechanoid70" is the most impressive version of all "biomechanoids" Giger has created

  The beautiful colors in light red and deep blue provides a unique atmosphere and makes this print to something extraordinary.

A real highlight of my collection

 

Titel: biomechanoid70   

year: 1970
number: 26
edition: 100

 

 

Biomechanoid 69

 

 

The "Biomechanoid69" is one of the rarest graphics that exist of Giger.

Appeared in 1969, with a planned edition with 150 pieces, from  this large-format graphic exist probably actually only a handful copys.

Whether the most copies in the fire disaster at the Publisher have been destroyed,

or whether not the desired number of copies has been printed, it is definitely fact that there are only very few copys of this graphic exist.

 

The few known copys of this graphics are dedicated from giger for selected people.

My copy, that is in a excellent condition, is not dedicated but its marked from Giger with  "AE" so this copy was sperated for the artist.

 

Titel: biomechanoid69  year: 1969

"Hau den Lukas"

 

 

 

This drawing comes from the "drawing expanded" series.

In 1988 Giger has selected a series of drawings from his sketchbook, to reproduce them from the small format of the sketch book to a larger size.

Giger has extended the now enlarged drawings using various techniques such as ink, pencil, charcoal, and pastel colors.

The result are in size and appearance advanced (expandad) versions of the original work.

 

My work of this "expanded" series is the drawing named 'Hau den  Lukas'.

A unique version of this fair as it can be seen only Giger.

 

     Original Drawing

        pencil, charcoal, marker on paper

            date 1988     

 

 

 

 

KoRn microphonstand

 

 
 

This drawing showes the microphonstand which Giger designed for the rockband KoRn

In the year 2000, Jonathan Davis' personal assistant, a woman by the name of Kimberly, had the great idea

to contact H.R. Giger and ask him to design a microphone stand for Jonathan Davis.

Jonathan liked the idea, so Kimberly contacted Giger's agent, to find out if Giger would be interested in such a commission.

It was agreed that Giger would be given total freedom to design anything he wanted without interference.

Later, after the mic-stand was finished and delivered, when Giger learned the identity of the woman

who suggested the idea to Jonathan, he made this drawing for her, as a way of thanking her and to give credit where credit was due.

 

The result of Gigers work is a stunning beauty, a sublime elegant sculpture with microphone as a Crown.

So uniquely awesome as it can create only Giger.

I am very glad that this unique drawing now is part of my collection

ALIEN  "unfreiwillige Begötterung"

 

In 2005 the "Xenorotica" Portfolio was realesed in a editon with 66 exemplares. Each with six lithos.

Three of this lithos show the alien in various erotic acts.

The drawing "unfreiwillige Begötterung" belong to his "Xenorotica" works.

 

From all "Xenorotica" woks is the "unfreiwillige Begötterung" the most detailed work.

Perhaps that was the reason why this drawing has been selected as a motif for the cover of the music CD/LP "Operatte Amorale":

 

Im very glad that this special drawing is part of my collection now

 

              Title: unfreiwillige Begötterung

          year:  2002 

           Technic: pencil on paper, signed, dated

 

 

    "biomechanic landscape"

This work is not only the biggest but probably the most impressive original in my collection.

 

 

In the year 1983 Giger made a serie of airbrushs in 48x43c

For this airbrushs Giger used for the first time perspective templates and reached even more intensive structures and patterns in the work.

The biomechanic landscape with the work-number 531 is on airbrush of this series.

A beautiful classic work by Giger that shows his masterfully biomechanic style

The absolute highlight of my entrie collection

 

 

A personal handwritten note by Giger is located on the back of the work:

 

 

Title: biomechanische Landschaft

worknumber: 531

year 1983

  Airbrush, Acryl on paper

 

 

"Crucifixion"

This work is the second Giger drawing from the "expanded drawing" serie in my collection.

Giger draw this large work in 1988 with coalpen, pencil and pastel on paper

The many details makes this drawing to a awesome work.

 

Year: 1988

coalpen, pencil and pastel

  "Female head"

B

This is one of Giger's rare and early works from the sixties

 

Giger made this drawing in the year 1963 with in on paper

 

Very filigree and expressive drawn:

       

 

When Giger created this drawing in the year 1963 he was 23 years old and just in the first year at the art-school in Zurich.

Even at such early works, Gigi's artistic genius clearly stands out.

The unmistakable uniqueness of his art is masterful and unrivaled.

 

To have such an early and extremely rare work in the collection is a great honor for me.

Without a doubt, this work is one of the most impressive pieces ever in my collection

"Guardian Angel"

 

beautiful version from Giger of a guardian angel

Published in a edition with 500 hand singend and numberd pieces

my guardian angel is number 124/500

 

 

"Nubian Queen"

 

indescribably elegant, graziel and noble the "nubian queen" is for me by far

the most impressive sculpture by Giger

 

appeared in an Edition with 99 copies from solid bronze with silver finish:

 

 

Name: nubian Queen

editon: 99 copys  numberd and  engraved signed

copynumber: 36/99

female torso bronze

This is the hard to find metal version of the "female torso"

made out of almost 6kg solid bronze, plated with silver its just a masterpiece

The edition was planed  with 666 pieces but there was made much less then this.

 

Each one is numberd and engraved-signed from Giger:

 

 

 

 

ALIEN lady

Very elegant symbiosis from the alien and a female body.

The sculpture, which is very rare to find, was released in a limited edition and

is elaborately made of nearly two kilograms of solid bronze.

 

 

ALIEN coffee table

 

Here an unusual interpretation of a living room table:

Giger alien was welded from countless metal parts to this impressive appearance.

Everything was used by the spark plug, clutch plates, springs to engine parts.

How much work and time has been necessary everyone can certainly imagine.

 

Giger Necronom office table

 

N

In the desk, made of solid wood, a masterfully carved Necronom is embedded in the table top.

The Necronom is carved with great attention to detail from the full wood and is covered by a glass plate.

 

Here the table top in detail:

A wonderful work in which the artist has shown impressively that he masterfully mastered his craft.
