The artwork exudes a profound sense of joy, effortlessly infusing any room with an alluring, vivacious ambiance. The uniqueness of the foldings adds an exquisite touch, making "Simulations" a loud and highly decorative add to any room. Each piece is framed in slim white wooden frames with glass. The unframed dimensions of each piece measure 60cm(H) x 80cm(W) (23.6in(H) x 31.5in(W)), while the framed dimensions are 63cm(H) x 83cm(W) (24.8in(H) x 32.7in(W)). Originally intended to hang horizontally, these pieces captivate viewers with their vibrant colors and dynamic compositions. Though unsigned, they bear the original label (see detail picture). Titled "Simulationen," gracefully translates to "Simulations" from German, and dated 2001. Notably, these four pieces are a part of one of Koliusis's grand architectural installations, comprising an astonishing 64 unique pieces, all rendered in the same captivating four colors. Artist Bio: Nikolaus Koliusis, born in Austria in 1953, embarked on a remarkable journey from his roots as a trained photographer to emerge as a renowned artist in the contemporary art scene. His transformative career began during his time with an international architectural firm, where he worked with the concept of simulation photography in architectural planning long before the digital era. From 1973 to 1978, he shared his innovative expertise as a lecturer at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart. A pivotal moment occurred during his stay in New York in 1978/79, where he encountered visual artist William Anastasi, leading him to shift away from conventional photography. The turning point came in 1981 with the "Expanded Photography" exhibition in Vienna, marking Koliusis's entrance into the world of artistry. Since 1979, Koliusis has remained deeply immersed in architecture-related projects, reaching a significant milestone with his first solo exhibition, "Photography – The Fragmentary, Expanded Image," at the Municipal Gallery in Lenbachhaus, Munich, in 1983, followed by an installation at the Kunsthalle in Kiel in 1987. As his career progressed, Koliusis ventured beyond the confines of traditional art, exploring broader societal contexts. In 1996, he created his first stage design, setting the stage for a diverse range of projects, including installations in hospitals, hospices, office spaces, and theaters. His work, characterized by sensual experiences, historical reflections, and contemporary contemplations, has contributed to multifaceted shifts in perspective. Nikolaus Koliusis's artistic contributions have left an memorable mark, with his works housed in private and public collections worldwide, including Japan, France, the USA, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Spain, Italy, Germany, Canada, and the United Kingdom. In 2023, Koliusis continues to captivate audiences with his artistry, featuring prominently in exhibitions such as "WARUM BLAU" at the Kunstbus Museum Pfalzgalerie in Kaiserlautern and "Blaumoment" at the Musikhochschule Stuttgart, where his work illuminates the intersection of music and visual art.
