About

A work by Guenther Uecker. "Poesie der Destruktion" is an abstract, mixed media on canvas by contemporary artist Guenther Uecker. "Poesie der Destruktion," as its title strongly suggests, is invested in rationalizing or harnessing those two opposing forces: creative beauty and destruction. This square-shaped composition has the deceptive appearance of randomness, a ground of camouflage-like, orange and black streaks of oil paint, interspersed with passages of raw canvas, is obscured by a thicket of bashed and mangled nails. This work is registered in the Uecker Archiv under the number GU.84.015 and will be noted for inclusion in the forthcoming Uecker Catalogue Raisonné Signed verso, "Poesie der Destruktion, 84, Uecker" Provenance: Riva Yares Gallery, Scottsdale Private Collection, Chicago, acquired from the above in 1985 Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, Chicago Heritage Auctions, California, 24 May 2018, Lot 77046 Private Collection, California, acquired from the above Exhibition: Scottsdale, In America: The Southwest Nail Reliefs and Sculpture 1984, Riva Yares Gallery
