3’ x 3’ Powder coated steel canvas (option for raw steel)
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.
“I love dissecting books and reconfiguring the text as poetry. In this collection, I cut up Thoreau’s Walden Pond and Mandelbrot’s Fractals in Nature, and integrated my own flock of “bird” Bits as a murmuration of starlings to create a three-way discussion about nature.” - Susan Weinthaler
