In 2001 Ekkehard met and filmed the 94 year old architect, Oscar Niemeyer which indelibly informed his future work. Taking influence from Architecture and the urban environ, Altenburgh's preference is to work with heavy materials. Producing pieces in steel, stone and recently rubber he seeks to explore and encapsulate the physical balance of the built environment as well the sculptural volumes of these physical materials. Often using texture and colour to manipulate surfaces, he strives to add further layers of sculptural information to create a relationship and balance between form and the surface of his work.

His UK commissions can be found in the public domain where he has produced site-specific pieces for private and public clients. He also has work through out Europe and as far afield as Central America, and will soon be showing at our sculpture garden.
