3’ x 6’ Raw steel canvas
Completed for Architectural Digest's MADE Design Show in March of 2017, this body of work is part of Susan's newest "Explosions" series.
Susan Weinthaler's distinct and original work uses small three dimensional structures with strong magnetic backings called Bits.
These hand crafted Bits can be grouped together on a steel canvas where you, the viewer, have the ability to manipulate, rearrange and reconfigure the pieces in limitless ways. As the Bits are meant to be touched, Susan has sanded, coated, painted and polished each surface with protective finishes for these pieces to last.
“A match strike is a tiny explosion used to light something else, something larger like a fire or a bomb. It feels like our country has indeed lit the metaphorical match, and we are about to see what comes next.” - Susan Weinthaler
