Pauluslaan 110, Noordwijk, Netherlands (Visits only by appointment)

On view untill February 2023.

This installation piece is a monumental work of four oil paintings on linnen that appears to hover on top of a sea of 1500 kg shards of glass that are individually painted to reflect the principle of the gradients. Polylith with Monolith refers to many and one, the many rocks underneath the singular shape. In this installation Donald Schenkel strived to bring all different aspects of this artistic practice together, as colours dazzle, materials intrigue and the installation interacts with the space of Root Gallery for which it was developed.
