the work of Andreas Dukek
Dukek with his multi dimensional sculptures wittily lampoons The state
of our world and the social situations and its culture.
The sculptures can be understood on many levels.
is to say his constructive works which are beautiful can be perceived
as a social citicism by people who are familiar and not familiar with
different cultures for example, the open part of his cubical
constructive cubes can be positioned on different angles that suggest
that they are not trapped in a political and cultural boundaries but
suggest they have a readiness to interact on a global situation.
constructive works are not perhaps that one might see from the
principle of the bauhaus or works done by artists in the high school of
design in Ulm in the 50’s Josef Albers, Maldonado, etc. but because
they have a twist that relies on the originality of the expression of
this young artist.
painterly works are combined with an individual imagery where the color
blends with it and turn transcends the cultural boundaries in this
beautiful and complex exhibit. As a young artist, he has a style in
wich the art world is open for his inovative and diversified works yet
