For the bodies of her sculpture series "wrapped" Isabel Ritter uses a "hollow iron" when working the wood (contrary to its original purpose of removing as much wood as possible at an early stage of the work) she uses the hollow shape of the iron for the conclusion of the work in order to create linear structures and ridge lines in a drawing-like manner, which on the one hand circumscribe the volume of the resulting form and at the same time "visually contract" it. Through this surface structure, the bodies experience an abstraction. But also in terms of content, for example, a "blue feather body" (see "Close to Nature #1") can undergo a transformation into hybrid human-animal beings and thus expand thematically. In contrast to this are the finely worked out faces which serve as fixed points for the recipients and only through the combination of the formally and/or contentwise opposing bodies sculptures with great aesthetic tension and freedom arise.
