My design, "Harnessing Hundertwasser," was chosen for the Highland Park Winter Mosaic Project 2013. Five artists' work is being displayed in frames along the HP Central Avenue business district January - May, 2013. Each work is meant to honor the style and essence of a famous artist. My work is not a copy but is meant to capture not only his style but also the hope Hundertwasser yearned for in his work.
Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000) was an Austrian painter and architect whose style is reflected in bold colors, organic forms, a reconciliation of humans & nature, a strong individualism and rejection of straight lines. He describes his work as hopeful ("color symbolizes hope") and wanted his images to point the Promised Land. Hundertwasser and I are kindred spirits.
