In 2007, Kurt Franz traveled on a bus across America and Western Europe studying city peripheries where construction and entropic sites become a common occurrence. Along the way he picked up enough materials to make some intriguing work.
As described by Franz, “The art pieces use temporary materials of the construction process are strung between batter boards, bending the wood in tension and compression. They allude to depth through color and line while being a sculptural assemblage of it’s own scale and density. The subjective reading of the work parallels that of the landscapes from which they were derived.”
