Friedrich Kunath (b. 1974, Chemnitz, Germany) studied at the Braunschweig University of Arts, Braunschweig, Germany, and now lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Kunath utilises a personal style of romantic conceptualism, layering poetic phrases with poignant, often melancholy imagery. The work embraces comedy and pathos, evoking universal feelings of love, hope, longing, and despair. The artist’s personal journey from Germany to Los Angeles plays a key role in his work, incorporating German Romanticism and western popular culture, with still life, cartoon imagery, commercial illustration, nature photography and lyrical references.

About the project

"I transformed the wooden trunk into a solid piece of sky, merging the contained, personal object with a notion of the infinite. The sky-imagery dissolves the geometric boundaries of the physical trunk, transforming it into a visual of the eternal. The motif is further illustrated with a personal note of the painted character who gazes out into the infinite, alongside text that reads ‘On A Clear Day I Can See You Forever.’ This piece is an ode to the people who are no longer with is, a sentiment that is both personal and illustrative of the great legacy of Louis Vuitton."
