Nature is his studio - for more than 20 years, southern German artist Wolfgang Laib has made art from marble, milk, rice, and pollen. He also molds sculptures from bee wax. Some of these sculptures are so tall that they hardly fit into a room. Laib started out as a physician, but his experiences with school medicine inspired him to pursue a unique career as an artist, which has earned him worldwide reputation. His biggest exhibit so far is opening in Washington, D.C., on October 26. It will show 19 of his nature works, as well as 15 drawings. The American Federation of Arts put together the exhibit, which will travel from the American capital to Seattle, Dallas, Scottsdale, and San Diego before coming to Munich in 2002. Georg Hirsch took a look at the art work and spoke with its creator.
