Alois Kronschlaeger’s “Polychromatic Structures” at Cristin Tierney Gallery, New York

Cristin Tierney Gallery, New York, presents the latest exhibition of Austrian-born artist Alois Kronschlaeger, titled “Polychromatic Structures”. Marking his second solo exhibition with the gallery, Polychromatic Structures comprises a series of site-responsive installations of his geometric polychrome basswood and ink sculptures that are placed across the walls according to the light, scale and vantage points of the gallery.

Heavily influenced by the legacy of Constructivism and post-Minimalism, Kronschlaeger manipulates color relationships, aiming to generate a phenomenological experience for the public. As the spectator moves through the gallery space, Kronschlaeger’s architectonic sculptures constantly transmute into new forms, creating a series of optical and kinetic effects that evoke the Op-Art paintings of Carlos Cruz-Diez and the interactivePenetrables” of Jesús Rafael Soto.

With their biomorphic shapes, complex structure and their variation in scale, Kronschlaeger’s monumental sculptures explore time and space via geometry, challenging the viewer, according to the artist, to reposition himself within the space. Inspired by urban industrial architecture, his works explore the notion of positive and negative space, urging us to reflect upon how the built environment guides our behavior. Polychromatic Structures will remain on view until May 16, 2015, at Cristin Tierney Gallery, 540 West 28th Street, New York, NY 10001.
