Lun Tuchnowski German, 1946-2018

Lun Tuchnowski was a masters student of Robert Jacobsen who was a strong influence on his work. Geometrically orientated shapes engage in compositions with organic shapes and through this they “almost passionately let the seemingly contradictory compete and communicate with each other.” (Lothar Romain)


His three-dimensional formations merge elements of construction and structure with natural and organic growth creating a taut balance. His formal language is often of physical character: single parts reach into space, break through bodies or take on functions of opening, closing or compacting.  From the early 1990s Tuchnowksi has deepened his reference to architecture which becomes visible in the artistic combination of fully three-dimensional and architectonic elements.
