Introducing the Wall Grid Structure Series

I’ve recently begun working on a new series of wall grid structures in the studio. They represent an exciting development in my work and a deepening of my understanding of my main materials, basswood and ink. I’m continuing to engage with color relations, spatial perception and the architectural structure of the cube, but with these new structures I’m now also exploring how I can project my sculptures into 3D space by co-opting the wall: a place largely reserved for flat works.

I am very pleased to be presenting these new wall grid structures at ZONA MACO in Mexico City next week, where I will be showing with Cristin Tierney Gallery in Booth E-212. I will also be attending the fair, so join me in Mexico to see them in person, and please feel free to take some photos! We will be using the hashtags #cubosdecolores #cubosycuadernos and #interioryexterior at ZONA MACO, and we invite you to tag your photos on social media at the fair.

Introducing the Wall Grid Structure Series

Now Available: The Alois Kronschlaeger Monograph

This winter I’m pleased to announce the publication of my much-anticipated monograph, which encompasses everything from my early works to my site-specific installations and exhibitions with Cristin Tierney Gallery. This monograph really shows the breadth and progression of my work, spanning not only several years but also a great variety of scale in my practice, from individual cubes to monumental mountain ranges. In addition, it documents many of the people and institutions I’ve been fortunate enough to work with, such as Florencia Minniti, the Bruce Museum, SiTE:LAB, MOCA Tucson, Florian Altenburg, Paul Amenta, Mathias Kessler and many more. Essays by Joe Fig, Matthias Neumann, Muriel Pérez and Anne-Marie Russell comprise additional features of the monograph, which would not have been possible without the hard work of editor Julie Krienik and designer Brian Sisco, not to mention the generous support of Cristin Tierney. The monograph debuted with much success at UNTITLED Miami in December, and I am excited to be bringing copies with me to Mexico for ZONA MACO next month. Copies are also available through Cristin Tierney Gallery.
