herbert bayer’s monochromatic space-painting and the design of self-contained sculpture

Undulated Wall
Herbert Bayer (1900-1985)
Powdercoated aluminum on a COR-TEN® steel base.

Bayer’s sculpture was photographed May 2009 at the Peyton Wright Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Photograph was taken with the gallery’s permission. We wish to thank the gallery for their graciousness. Photography by versluis by ©2009.

Although written in the context of a different project what Bayer says below seems apropos for this sculpture as well:

vistor, walking around…, experiences varying views and impressions. by walking through space-painting, he becomes participant in space-time concept.… changing shadows, the tree, [retinal vibrations], contribute to impressions.… [1]
