Christian Lemmerz’ oeuvre’s span is extensive and pluralistic. Regardless of the material, the form or the medium employed, Lemmerz’ work can generally be characterized by aesthetics of effect. The artworks grasp out and clutch into the surrounding environment and call for more than merely contemplation. There are only a few themes and taboos that are not turned upside down in the Lemmerzian universe, which has been stretched between, on the one side, Kant, Heidegger and other philosophers and authors, and on the other, a mass-media dominated world where suffering and death are central themes in an examination that circles around identity, existence and being.

” My artwork is an ongoing documentation of my immediate frame of reference. I tend to take an introspective approach to art, allowing my intuition to guide me through what needs to be communicated with each piece. Many of my works portray emotions brought upon by the human condition while others simply serve as a meditational outlet through color and shape. My interests include: identity, coping strategies, addiction, and mental health.” – Christina Zimmer Robinson

Leonardo Drew is known for his dynamic large-scale sculptural installations. On the one hand, Drew’s sculptures can be seen as exercises in formalism rooted in the very experience of looking. On the other hand, these works explore memory by employing a wide range of material to evoke common elements of the human experience and of our diverse histories. (via Sikkema Jenkins Co.)
