Ernst Fuchs has nothing to do with Kara Walker’s sugar baby except that her work led me to discover Ernst Fuchs. Fuchs created an “all human” female sphinx in the 1970s. (See Tangent: Sexual Sphinx).
Fuchs caught my attention as Fuchs saved Otto Wagner’s house from the wrecking ball in 1963 in a failed partnership with two other visionary artists – Friedensreich Hundertwasser and Arnulf Rainer. Fuchs restored the house and added his own art through 1988 when Fuchs move to France and opened the building as a museum. Click Here.
Below is Fuchs’ architecture.
