"Bees Wax and Dental Floss"
oil and wax on canvas
is a younger breed of abstract painter, his work is far more restrained
and academically oriented than that of Ms. Tudor. His works are closer
to those of the Ab-Ex precursors from the Bauhaus, specifically Joseph
Albers. Using combinations of oils, alkyds, inks, beeswax and dental
floss or thread on paper, wood and canvas, Landkammer creates etudes
of two color relationships in either vertical or horizontal bars which
are overlaid with grids composed of threads or dental floss. Most are
quite small, 4 to 12 inches square, as well as some small rectangles.
There is a restraint, an almost a-emotional quality in these compositions
that may be deceptive. On closer inspection, they reveal an unassuming
asymmetry that betrays a feeling of Zen mysticism.
