When the four elements of wood, light, mesh and paint are combined the result is Allotropisms, a new, site-specific installation by Alois Kronschlaeger at the Cristin Tierney Gallery. Alois’ work exists at the intersection of art, architecture, fashion and design. His forms are surreal and his materials simple, in the tradition of earlier artists such as Frederick Kiesler and Buckminster Fuller. Alois is best known for his site specific installations and sculptures, which demonstrate a preoccupation with environment and light, as well as an interest in exploring time and space via geometry.
I have had the immense pleasure of working with Alois this week on the installation – his most ambitious project to date. The opening of Allotropisms is Thursday, January 13, 2011, 6-8pm at the Cristin Tierney Gallery, 546 W 29th Street, New York, NY 10001.
Here is a sneak peak!
