Description Brecht Wright Gander’ concrete Occlusion Wall, a large scale mural composed of a series of bespoke cast concrete tiles, is available by commission to accommodate any interior or exterior in an endless array of dimensions and compositions.

Beginning with abstract freeform sketches, Gander creates a motif of forms and symbols that is translated into a larger image. Broken into a grid pattern, Gander then hand-carves the image into foam panels that act as a reverse for casting in lightweight, pigmented concrete. This unconventional process of reductive carving and casting allows Gander to essentially sketch with concrete, also rendering each panel unique.

His ephemeral impulse is captured in the concrete, taking on a surprisingly fresh durability. Much like his Ode to the Wrong Angle Series of vessels, conglomerations of found objects that are then cast in aluminum, the panels move quickly from impulse to solid material as technology allows. Gander’s patterned mural panels are available exclusively through Todd Merrill Studio.

New York City artist, Brecht Wright Gander treats functionality as a ground for aesthetic play. His wide-ranging curiosity fuels his research-driven practice. With unyielding confidence Gander engages a multitude of unconventional materials in ways which cause them to spark, become molten, desiccate, oxidize, exhale and twist. He describes his unique works as “a culmination of many collisions.” Produced through experiment and experience, his sculptural works often hide their functionality on first appearance.

With a BA from Skidmore in foundational philosophy and years of experience working for firms focused on high-end design and build outs, Gander launched his own studio in 2017 to fully explore his intrepid approach to conception. Since then his truly unique, hand-made designs have succeeded in gaining attention, whether it be shock, awe, or admiration.

Gander has been featured in Architectural Digest, Sight Unseen, Apartment Therapy, Design Milk, and the New York Times. In addition, Gander was a finalist for “Emerging Designer of the Year” in 2018 at NYCxDesign.
