These works were created at Schloss Salem / Salem Castle during Salem2Salem 2012, an artist exchange sponsored by Salem Art Works, Salem NY, and Bodensee Kulturam, Salem, Germany.

 

Equally important are the place, the collaboration between artists, and the work created there.

Untitled (kaisersaal), 2012

beeswax installation, dimensions variable


This work references the diamond-shaped pattern found in the Imperial Room of Castle Salem in Salem, Germany. The endlessly repeating stone pattern creates an optical effect, immediately capturing the focus of those entering the room. In the installation “Untitled (Kaisersaal), 2012,” slender beeswax strips are assembled in long overlapping lines, creating a ghost pattern or image inspired by the room in the Castle.
