Made from drywall, paint, steel frames, and wood, Schramm site-specific installations challenge the viewers to discern where the artwork ends and the gallery’s architecture begins. His twisted, splintered fragments of structural forms — walls, ceilings, floors — burst from the building's framework at dramatic angles, producing large-scale works that seem at once threatening and fragile. Schramm presents a new piece that continues his pursuit of achieving balance between chaos and order, the particular and the universal, and offers visitors an experience of physical tension.
