Ascension is the attempt to recreate the notion of a wall fragment as a work of art.
Each object is made of plaster over wood, actual building materials, though in varying degrees mixed and modified with fine-art supplies such as nikawa (a type of glue used in nihonga, that is, traditional Japanese painting) or lacquer paint. Works are finally covered with a layer of epoxy resin, which seals the surface but also interacts randomly with the other materials, creating a texture of depth and withered beauty that is partially reflective, partially decayed.
The artist is from Germany.
He learned art in Germany, New York and Tokyo. He currently works in Japan.
The objects in this salon are for sale.
