Gene Kiegel (Ukraine 1974 - )


About

Gene Kiegel explores overlooked beauty in the familiar and commonplace. Hidden beneath our hyper-stimulating and over saturated reality, it is often left unseen. Kiegel’s work displays the beauty of simplified organic interactions in basal elements. It is a deductive process in both theory and application. The ‘Another World’ series relies on beeswax as a building block due to its unique structural nature. Its architectural properties are exemplified through its native function as the masonry of a beehive. The wax’s organic nature lends itself to the generation and simulation of organic forms and phenomena. The resulting artifacts are both acutely familiar and entirely alien.
