Brainforest

Brainforest is the name of a piece by Gerda Steiner & Jorg Lenzlinger but I think it’s also a great way of describing the style that all of their work has. Steiner was originally a wall painter and Lenzlinger was creating stalactite-like forms when they joined forces in 1997. The amount of detail in their large scale installations is staggering. You can tell how much I love their work by the number of images I have included in this post.
