"From the beginning of my career as an artist I have been concentrating myself on the “human being = matter and spirit" finding the resources in the soul of the human being. Getting deeper into the feelings and emotions by creating something.” (P. M.)
Sculptor master living and working in Ortisei. Started to sculpt (carve) at the age of 15 years in the workshop of his father, the academic sculptor Enrico Moroder Doss. At the same time, he was attending the arts institute of Ortisei. Bringing his skills to perfection on a trip to Chicago in the United States.
“... the artist can be recognized in each of his works even if he applies different materials and forms. He uses for each creation just one material. Each work shows a just recognized iconography in a simplified way and personal interpretation.
In this way, every single element differentiates from the other, because each architectonical place needs a different readjustment of the works so that the figure and the space around it build a harmony.
Before realizing his own aesthetic and operative ideas, Paul Moroder puts them in discussion.
The plastic representation receives a chromatic value and rhythmical contrast: Moroder harmonizes the brightness of the bronze and the opaque spots of the marble; the result is a work full of harmonic unexpected vividness but never losing the respect towards the traditional original iconography.
. (D. Serafini)
For every work Paul Moroder pays a lot of attention not to use too much space for them and not to rule the artificially e rhetoric sense of them, making sure not to remove the importance of their duty being there.
Paul Moroder honours the use of his works with honest sensation, in perfect technique and superb making of absolute beauty.
Wood, bronze, marble and crystal glass are his most common used materials.
In the last years, he has been doing some painting as well.
