Epeius' Delight, Louis Vuitton Andy Warhol Multicolor Box Sculpture Charles Lutz

About

Epeius' Delight Acrylic on canvas with leather and brass fittings over wood. 30 x 18 x 22" 2014 The Series Lutz refers to as "Luxury Sculptures" are based on the forms of Louis Vuitton trunks in combination with the box sculptures of Andy Warhol. Lutz began this series in 2008. The works aim to create a feedback loop. Where Warhol elevated consumer products like Brillo and Heinz Ketchup to Fine Art, Lutz now takes those artworks and debases them by making them luxury objects in his own art practice. The works are constructed in the same manner as a genuine Vuitton, though in this case, Lutz has removed all functionality the original trunks would have provided, these are now closed systems only showing a surface of pure luxury. Each of these works is unique, hand painted silkscreened and then hand tacked with hundreds of nickel plated brass nails with hand printed leather trim. Although not functional as trunks or storage, these sculptures are elegant versatile objects in the home, aesthetically stunning from all sides, these boxes can be stacked, used as a side table or coffee table, or just enjoyed for their playful beauty.
