    ‘My artistic project has as its focus an examination of the economies of paradigmatic abstraction in the 20th century. My interest is in the depiction and expression of transcendentalist and spiritualist themes since the beginning of the Renaissance.’ – Christian Eckart

    Having worked with wood, moldings, Plexiglas, gold leaf, hand rubbed lacquer, and brushed aluminum-lacquered found images, Eckart considers himself as a fin-de siècle artist. In this painting, he celebrates gold leaf, a technique he admires in religious Renaissance and Baroque paintings, though here distorted by the asymmetric shape of the plywood.
