About Rudolf Kohn
In my work I honor those who have come before me, those I walk with now and those who will come after me. I relate with the presence of the divine, the ultimate interconnected thread of life. An intersection of contemporary art with influences from different tendencies. I create an experience that is alive with color and interactive, bringing ancient memories to the frontal cortex. Communication in the form of antennae or concentric pieces has been a principal theme in my sculpture work.

My newest series depicts a reply to the mysteriously placed crop circles. With the understanding that these massive art forms are placed by otherworldly intelligence. I reply with earthly materials such as metal and color. A message transmits through movement much like a signal is transmitted, and a unique expression is revealed in each piece. The shapes represent those that have once been left for us. Re-coded into synchronistic order and vibrantly colored, they show the brilliant diversity we have on earth.
