Luka Fineisen - Mixed Media Sculptor

Luka Fineisen
Mixed Media Sculptor

         Luka Fineisen is a German artist who works with many different kinds of media to create amazing sculptures that capture the "moments of becoming" as her work is described.  Her creations explore the transitions of matter between states; solid, liquid and gas.  These tipping points between states are what intrigue and inspire Fineisen to make these sculpture-like installations.  She fabricates these works of art from foam, plastic, molten metal, liquids and countless other kinds of materials.
Fineisen is unafraid of creating something delightful, but fascinated by the moment when that allure becomes unnerving. When sensuality becomes dangerous. When attraction turns to repulsion. Fineisen shows us the exact moment when she loses control over her creation and the coinciding love and fear of that instant.    -Bio by Hosfelt Gallery
        Luka Fineisen's website is more of a work summary and resume than a portfolio site.   I would advise checking it out as well as Fine Line Magazine where I found some of the images for this post.  Hosfelt Gallery in San Francisco CA, has a great little blurb about Luka Fineisen and her work.
