LARS MüLLER PUBLISHERS

Allan Wexler

Absurd Thinking-Between Art and Design

Edited by Ashley Simone.

This book features projects, developed during the artist Allan Wexler’s forty-five-year career, which mediate the gap between fine and applied art using the mediums of architecture, sculpture, photography, painting, and drawing. Wexler's production can be broadly described as tactile poetry composed by re-framing the ordinary with the intention of sustaining a narrative about landscape, nature, and the built environment that highlights the intriguing and surprising characteristics latent in the elements and rituals that pervade daily life. His work demonstrates a commitment to re-evaluating basic assumptions about our relationship to the built and natural environments. Organized thematically across four categories—abstraction, landscape, private space, and public places—this publication is a richly illustrated cross section of Wexler’s multi-scale, multi-media work, featuring his own writings, narratives, and reflections.


Ashley Simone is a designer, educator, writer, and photographer based in New York City.

FROM THE BOOK
On the Fine Art of Applied Art

I make buildings, furniture, vessels, and utensils.
I use function as media.

I try to make theater out of everyday life.

I explore eating, sleeping, bathing.
I work with gravity, wind, and rain.

I build structures that try to rise upward into the sky.
I build structures that try to descend into the earth.
I preserve the artifacts of living.
I document the dream.
I protect the dreamer.
I am interested in desire.
I make charcoal drawings of furniture with burnt tree branches.
I build furniture with trees.
I try to give life to the dead.
I try to stop time.
- Allan Wexler, 2008
