Christian Guenther Statement

I have had an interest in producing artistic objects since I was very young. During the course of my life I have utilized pencil & paper, photography, clay, stone, metal, gems and glass to convey my ideas/ feelings about my relationship to the natural world and its juxtaposition to the world we have created around us.

 

My current work is a series of signposts or markers, if you will, from photo study of the most raw and basic elements of nature. These markers are intended to lead one's thoughts back to what I see as the basic building blocks of our existence, our foundation. Ultimately, a reassessment of what we have done with the cosmic miracle that surrounds us is what I'm trying to evoke from the viewer with this work. On a less transcendental level, I like the idea of bringing these strong image/ elements into the home, or private environments we maintain for ourselves.
