Escher / Gunewardena

Escher GuneWardena’s work addresses issues of sustainability, affordability and the dialogue between form and construction.  They seek to establish simple formal manifestations of the complexities of each project, investigating the sublimated characteristics intrinsic to the work itself.  The firm’s interest in contemporary art has led to various collaborations with artists and art related projects, including numerous installations for Sharon Lockhart, Olafur Eliasson (Emi Fontana Gallery’s 2005 West of Rome series), Mike Kelley (Sculpture Projects Muenster 07), and the new Blum & Poe Gallery, Los Angeles.
