Influenced by his father, Hans Krenn (1932 – 2007), Veit Krenn has been engaged in the creation of structures, forms and sculptures since 1989.

In his professional life he is constantly dealing with various anatomical, histopathological and macropathological structures at a diagnostic level and these form the basis for his art.

Some of his works make a direct reference to concrete inner structures and organs, while others modify and only hint at a creative proximity to organic body structures.

The drawings shown here were initially created as idea sketches before the material realization of the sculptures. Drawn in charcoal, pencil and opaque colour, they served as the basis for the design of the objects.
