    "Crustacea I" is a commanding brutalist / abstract mixed media wall sculpture by Dan Schneiger, created circa 2015. This sculpture stands as a robust embodiment of Schneiger's aesthetic, constructed from a medley of wood, foam core, plaster, and resin, with a hand-painted golden bronze metallic finish that imparts the piece with the grandeur of solid metal.

    This large relief wall sculpture measures an impressive 48 inches in height and width, with a depth of 10 inches, creating a dominant visual statement. Schneiger's signature use of metallic finishes is particularly effective here, conjuring the illusion of a dense, heavy material, yet the artwork retains a surprising lightness thanks to the inventive use of lightweight core materials.

    The piece is a perfect illustration of Schneiger's interdisciplinary approach, where the principles of architecture meet the fluidity of art, resulting in works that defy conventional expectations. His background as an architect, especially his experience during the digital revolution, is evident in the structured, tactile nature of his sculptures, which honor the handcrafted over the machine-made.

    Residing in Miami, Florida, Schneiger is celebrated for his sculptures that explore the interplay between form and substance, weight and levity, complexity and simplicity. "Crustacea I," like his other works, is a conversation with the design giants of the 20th century, incorporating elements of Brutalism and Cubism into its architectonic form.

    Each component of the sculpture, often sourced from reclaimed materials, is carefully selected and assembled, underscoring Schneiger's commitment to sustainability and his critique of waste in contemporary society. These components come together to create a structure that is at once reminiscent of the solidity of monolithic architecture, the complexity of urban landscapes, and the organic forms found in nature.

    "Crustacea I" is not just a piece of art; it is a bold statement on the potential of materials and the power of human ingenuity to transform them into something that transcends their original purpose, creating beauty from the discarded and elevating construction into art.
