Volker Kuhn
Golden Egg - contemporary original art in boxes artwork by Volker Kuhn




"Golden Egg" is an original mixed media artwork by Volker Kuhn. The work is hand-signed by the artist below the artwork on the mat. 29 x 25 cm framed in a silver wood-framing with simple hanging mechanism on back. Stamp certified on back. Since 1986 Volker Kuhn combines his inexhaustible creativity and his motto "just create it" into art objects: Snapshots on little stages, that put a smile on the viewer's faces. These three-dimensional masterpieces display, perhaps with a little smirk, the scenes of life that we encounter from time to time or showcases homages to great works of art. Volker Kuhns picture language is universally comprehensible, which is one of many reasons why his art has garnered international acclaim. His works are carved out by hand and painted with painstaking accuracy yet with a lightness of touch. As it is, this art in boxes is art to go: unique art collector's items from a collector's hands, whose common denominator is their focus on the pure experience of the thing-in-itself which, entering a contrastive or even antithetical relationship to the symbolic OTHER, develops a strong semantic relationship previously unperceived. Thus exploited to their utmost potential, the showcase scenes always cut right to the chase, they mostly hit the mark, and sometimes they may strike a nerve. But more than this: They're fun. Both that is for you to find out...
