Artist Statement

Achtung VI is a vibrant large-scale mixed media wall sculpture. It is made from birch panels, stain and pigmented lacquer on MDF with a satin finish. Each Achtung piece in the series features a unique color palette and they are directly inspired by mid-century modern design in both color and form. The bold orange/citrine/green/gray/black and white colors combined with the natural cherry wood grain to suggest this time period where bold colors and futuristic shapes were combined with organic wood tones. The juxtaposed angles and colors create a surprising sense of both forward movement and calm. I am very influenced by Frank Stella's early work as well as other minimalists and modernists. As for the name, Achtung VI, while there is a lot going on in this piece, it somehow has a zen-like effect in the room. Like the eye of a storm. It will be the focal point of any space, yet it manages to not overpower. The piece comes with a custom wood French cleat system so it floats on the wall.
