    “Crustacea III” is a monumental brutalist/abstract mixed media wall sculpture by Dan Schneiger, created circa 2015. The piece is a formidable assemblage of wood, foam core, plaster, and resin, all brought to a stunning conclusion with a hand-painted golden bronze metallic finish.

    One of the defining characteristics of Schneiger's sculptures is his innovative use of metallic finishes. This particular finish not only gives the lightweight materials an appearance of solid bronze but also plays with our perceptions of weight and density. It is a testament to Schneiger’s skillful handling of materials and his ability to invoke the solidity and permanence of metal through his intricate techniques.

    This sculpture's impressive scale, measuring 48 inches in height and 96 inches in width with a depth of 10 inches, provides a sense of architectural grandeur. Handcrafted from reclaimed materials, it stands as a testament to Schneiger's commitment to sustainability and his ability to create art that has a reduced environmental impact, despite its robust appearance.

    The essence of Dan Schneiger's architectural background is infused into every facet of his work. "Crustacea III", like his other sculptures, intersects the realms of art and architecture, drawing upon the aesthetic principles of Brutalism and Cubism. The piece echoes the block-like forms and organic yet biomorphic structures that are reminiscent of both 20th-century art movements and the enduring nature of architectural design.

    The artwork is a conversation with the materials themselves, revealing their potential to form complex, geometric compositions. These shapes come together like a 3D puzzle, reminiscent of cityscapes or rock formations, challenging the viewer’s understanding of space and form. Dan Schneiger's work is a dialogue with the masters of the past, a contemporary homage to the iconic styles that have shaped our visual and structural landscape.
