Bale 001

30.5 x 32.5 x 70.5”

Reclaimed steel with compression strap and movable (wheel mounted) base

1018 pounds

$7500


Bale 001 demonstrates the elevation of society’s castoffs to large format art.

Architect James Trahan AIA of 180 Degrees Design + Build has rescued thousands of pounds of metal from a Phoenix scrapyard, and in these works has combined his love of industrial materials and his passion for art.

The materials were compressed into gigantic ingots, transported to 180’s fablab, cleaned, trimmed, and readied for their next life.  Then, a custom base was crafted for each, lifting these massive chunks of scrap up from the ground, both literally and figuratively.

Colorbox4 – Y/266, 2019

43 x 52

Automotive paint and clearcoat 

on cold rolled steel

$8500


  

Combining the style of color field painters Josef Albers, Mark Rothko and Rupprecht Geiger, the geometry of Victor Vasarely, the fluorescence of Dan Flavin, and the precision of Donald Judd, Colorbox Series 2 by Leenie Engel exhibits a controlled geometry combined with an exuberant use of color.

Each Colorbox features two distinctive hues, juxtaposed for maximum impact. The colors were selected and paired to immediately excite the eye, yet over time, the observer will sense the harmony of the relationship between the two disparate tones.

Each artwork’s substrate is created by forming a sheet of cold rolled steel into a five sided box, with hand finished joints and corners. Weighing close to 100 pounds each, the pieces are supported by a cleat device that allows for easy installation and flush wall mounting.

In order to achieve long-lasting, vibrant color rendition, the works feature high quality automotive paint and multiple applications of protective clear-coat resin. Teaming with a master auto restorer and refinisher allows for the same flawless paint application used on custom autos costing well into six figures.


Each Colorbox celebrates the intersection of painting and sculpture, fine craftsmanship, and the artist’s sophisticated love of color.

Clearbox3, Twisted Sisters, 2019

20 x 20 x 60
Found aluminum strapping

$1800

(pedestal and vitrine included)

  

A deliberate, graceful assemblage of discarded aluminum castoffs adds importance to an otherwise discardable object and makes it precious.  

  

Clearbox Series 1 by Leenie Engel elevates the status of non-art objects by sculpting them into plexi vitrines. By employing these clear cases, the artist has museum-ized ordinary specimens of everyday life.

When Jeff Koons floated basketballs in glass vitrines, he transformed the mundane object to art object. Damien Hirst’s tiger shark preserved in formaldehyde inside a glass terrarium further expanded the question of ‘what is art?’

In this series, the artist celebrates the beauty of workaday items by the literal showcasing of everyday materials, sealed inside transparent display cases.

Automotive windshield and copper wire

$1800

(pedestal and vitrine included)


A disused automobile windshield has been rolled, folded and bound with copper wire, creating an object with far less utility and far greater beauty than it had in its first incarnation.
