The title for this series of vases by Linnenbrink is a play on the phrase, Gesamtkunstwerk, which roughly translated means, "universal artwork" or "total artwork." The artist is well-known for his epoxy resin paintings and sculptures that produce an overwhelming and unrequited desire in the viewer to experience their glossy surfaces. With the GESTALTKUNSTWERKE vase series, Linnenbrink is able to offer complete or "total" works that can finally be fully experienced through sight, touch and, now, use. Each vase in this edition is handmade, completely unique and incorporates a whimsical approach to recycling. As he makes his paintings and sculptures, the artist is left with an excess of pigmented epoxy resin. Rather than discarding it, he layers this leftover resin inside discarded and often familiar plastic juice, water, or soda bottles and creates an inner water-proof cavity by inserting smaller post-consumer vessels such as paint bottles or water bottles. Once cured, he removes the outer plastic bottle to reveal the smooth and radiant forms, allowing the viewer to truly see and appreciate these usually-overlooked designs in a permanent and useful way.
