A Non-Linear Linearity

Bodo Korsig has a “visual opinion” on just about everything, yet despite the strength of his convictions, he is a true master of the understated gesture, weighing in equally on the miraculous as well as the mundane.
Bodo Korsig’s mixed media sculptures made from polished chrome steel, wood and colored paper would be considered “objects of desire” by most who encounter them, yet to dismiss them as such would be to do them a profound disservice as each represents a system of complex ideas and possibilities; Many of these sculptures derive from a distinctive, consumerist image, i.e. the baby pacifier, spiky and riddled with holes, thereby defeating its purpose, and the chromed image of a human brain, riddled with its own synaptic potholes, recesses, canyons and valleys.
Life is, after all, nonlinear and Korsig understands that the human brain exists beautifully, and in many cases ecstatically, within this “all-too-pitted” non-linearity, as do many of the objects that fill our daily lives.
 Life as we know it is predicated on ambiguity and the inscrutability of the unknown despite our attempts to control all that we see around us.
