Gary Kuehn is a renowned artist in the United States. Since the end of the 1960s, his works have often been exhibited in Germany as well. His extensive oeuvre includes sculptures, paintings, collages, and drawings. Kuehn does not aim at displaying structured and methodological work, rather reacting again and again to the coherences of society in relation to his own state. This connection of emotional subjectivity and the perception of facts of an objective reality is what his works are about. With an incredible sense of materials and technical knowledge of their properties, Kuehn works with wood, metal, plaster, polyester, Plexiglas, aluminum, and steel.
