Artist Len Klikunas paints to modify experienced reality through visual perception. The "Blocks" series is a mix of art and architecture, hovering between painting and sculpture. It employs shizen (自然): the Japanese concept of naturalness, absence of pretense or artificiality. Material is stretched over a supporting three-dimensional framework, like a tent, and coated with paint.
The work is characterized by “mindful artlessness” and simplicity. Understated and subtle, the work doesn’t only refer to itself, and it doesn’t explain everything.
This 21" by 21" square and 3" deep artwork is wired and ready to hang. The Chinese textile is stretched around the sides of this unique artwork to continue the design on the sides, and it does not require framing. The artist signs and titles the back. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included. Convenient local Los Angeles area delivery. $50 shipping within Continental US. Affordable worldwide shipping options available. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included.
