Brecht Wright Gander, Flow Series Hunk Table, USA

About

Brecht Wright Gander’s Flow Series hunk table begins with a “hunk” of styrofoam and a chainsaw. Gander carves the rock-like form through intuition, letting the process dictate the ultimate shape. A fiberglass provides strength, as well as an impeccable surface for Gander’s improvisational surface decoration. Layer upon layer of iridescent color-shifting pigmented resin is poured and encouraged to move of it’s own will, gently running down the sides of the table top. Borrowing techniques from custom hotrod body work, the pigmented resin is sealed in multiple clear coats, and polished to a hard candy finish. Gander treats functionality as a ground for aesthetic play. His wide-ranging curiosity fuels his research-driven practice. He engages a multitude of unconventional materials, describing his unique works as “a culmination of many collisions.” Gander seeks out materials that allow him to go from impulse to final result with few intermediate steps. Using resins, paper pulps, single-use molds, spray foam, and cast-able concrete allows the artist’s hand to resonate throughout the work, addressing the “longing for haptic connection” Gander feels is a by-product of digital culture. A recent move to a large warehouse-sized studio space in rural New Jersey has opened up Gander’s opportunity to experiment with new materials, including lightweight glass fiber, reinforced concrete, and color-shifting pigments, while allowing his works to take on a monumental scale. Maintaining a delicate balance between whimsy and function helps stabilize Gander’s design practice. “I want a certain level of seriousness with my play, to know that it’s connected to an inquiry that has a weighted intention behind it,” he says. “When it’s playful but also having to hit these measures of functionality, that’s the kind of place that I find the most compelling.”
