Current Exhibition - Commissioners' Choice: Stefan Begej

January 4 - March 23

 Mr. Begej will showcase works from his Fragmentation Series of mixed-media wall sculptures created using a "flash sculpture" technique (a three-dimensional analogue of high-speed flash photography) to visually represent various human emotions and behaviors, or to express commentary on social and cultural topics.

 
Each sculpture is based on one or more recovered and repurposed objects that have been fragmented and dissociated, then re-composed into an exploding radial array of energetic shards, pieces, and components. Much of the experimentation in these works is done in the fragment re-composition phase, in which the natural laws of physics and causality are deliberately disregarded, modified, or simply re-invented in ways that suitably amplify the visual dramatics of each artwork.
 
The largest portion of the exhibit consists of musical instruments selected from genres such as classical, rock, jazz, and bluegrass.  Singly, the artworks are invented exaggerations intended to represent an impossibly intense exuberant state on the part of the individual musician.  However, when grouped, they can also represent a much greater collective exuberance exhibited by an instrumental ensemble, a band, or even something as large as an entire classical orchestra.  
 
Other works in the Fragmentation collection include objects such as sports equipment, personal accessories, small electronic appliances, and toys, and are intended to represent other facets of human behavior such as athletic enthusiasm, the surprise of discovery, mathematical misunderstandings, and unbridled acquisitiveness.
 
Mr. Begej has been pursuing artistic endeavors for the last five years after retirement from careers in metallurgical engineering, computer science, instrumentation development, and robotics.  His current interests include mixed-media sculptures, photography, small mechanicals, and large-scale mobiles.
