In a dimly lit corner of the gallery, a mesmerizing, colossal sculpture catches the eye. Standing at over 10 feet tall and made entirely of polished stainless steel, the piece exudes a hypnotic aura. Its surface is intricately textured, with impossibly delicate etchings that resemble the intricate patterns of a spider’s web. The sculpture seems to defy gravity, suspended effortlessly in midair, as if defying the laws of physics.
Upon closer inspection, one notices countless tiny mirrors embedded within the sculpture, reflecting the surrounding light with dazzling intensity. As the viewer moves around the piece, these mirrors cast dazzling reflections that dance across the gallery walls, creating an ethereal spectacle. The sculpture’s form is abstract yet organic, resembling a celestial, nebulous cloud, frozen in time.
This captivating artwork, titled “Celestial Reflections,” is an homage to the renowned artist Yayoi Kusama and her iconic Infinity Mirror Rooms. Created by Frank Bueltge, this astonishing piece pays tribute to Kusama’s exploration of infinite space and the enigmatic powers of reflection. Released today at the esteemed Haven Art Gallery, “Celestial Reflections” invites spectators to lose themselves in the boundless beauty of the universe, while evoking a sense of introspection and wonder. This piece stands as a testament to Bueltge’s creativity and his unwavering dedication to pushing the boundaries of contemporary art.
