Site-responsive installations were the linear order of the day at the opening last April 9th for Polychromatic Structures by Alois Kronschlaeger. The basswood and ink sculptures had a life of its own as colors and orientation was contingent upon the interior specifications of the gallery. The grids and hollowed cubes hearken to a defiant urban landscape that asserted itself and some melting forms buttressed in some parts reflected the architecture of Frank Gehry. The juxtaposition of the precise versus the organic made it a phenomenal experience. You are forced to interact with the sculptural installations by peering down, going round about and jostling your head into an angle, which makes it more than some structure that encroached upon the gallery space. This is art with real presence.
