Koegler’s relationship with sculpture is intuitive and visceral, free from rules and regulations. Deeply attached to the tactility of the human body, the sculptor is meticulously involved with the procedural development of her characters—first in clay, then in plaster—to finally cast them in pure bronze. Perfectly calibrated proportions and plastic shaping coexist with vibrant patinas. Color is, in Koegler’s hands, a powerful means of expression. Her bronzes, figurative at first, embed uncanny surrealist elements in Koegler’s visual grammar, teasing the viewer’s imagination. The elaborate treatment of their surfaces through designs and muscled interventions reinvents them into a metaphor, sometimes combining textual means to enhance the narrative. In this endless exploration, the statues’ skin becomes a narrative space holding a unique story to unravel.
