Linear Series #2 • 2015
Beacon Building • 427 Main Street
Linear Series #2 is an exploration of constructing and combining two and three dimensional forms based on mathematical and modular constraints in a non-rigorous way. The final result of this combinational zeitgeist resolves into a narrative between the articulated forms within a semi-grid structure support system.
Peter Schlemowitz (b. 1940) is a sculptor, building and furniture designer and painter whose residence and studio have been in Beacon, NY since 2002. His artistic roots are based on his immersion in the San Francisco Beatnik art, film and poet milieu in the 50s and in the New York art scene from the 50s; the 10th Street artist co-op galleries and the Cedar Bar – through the Soho and Lower East Side second-generation New York School and Pop Art galleries era in the 60s and 70s. His technical artistic skills were honed by a parallel career first as a carpenter and construction manager involved with renovating and restoring landmark buildings in New York City and then as a software engineer consulting to Fortune 100 corporations in the US and Europe. His most recent work is a merger of his artistic, construction and software background with the latest advanced CNC and CAD technologies.
