WINK : Warren Muller
Wink: Warren Muller is an exciting retrospective of the career and work of Warren Muller, a multi-disciplinary Philadelphia artist whose fantastical sculptural creations are prized by collectors and museums alike. Wink offers a fascinating glimpse into Muller’s artistic background and creative process, and the sense of fun and discovery that permeate both his work and personal life.
With an enviable dexterity, Warren Muller creates fantastic lighting sculptures from an assorted collection of found, recycled, and salvaged objects. In his capable hands, small statuary, ladders, wheels, taxidermy, industrial machinery, musical instruments and even full-size automobiles have all been faithfully transformed from the everyday into the extraordinary. Muller’s sculptures exhibit an interesting, often enigmatic dialog that engages each viewer in personal and unpredictable ways. Part whimsical and part sublime, Muller’s novel approach has been promoted in a variety of projects that include corporate, residential, hospitality and entertainment as well.
Wink: Warren Muller is an oversized, four-color edition featuring 180 images by noted photographers Robert Hakalski and Brad Fowler, and a catalog examining over 50 representative works, with detailed information and commentary by the artist and various collectors. Written and designed by the award-winning team of Kevin Hanek and E.C. Graham, this edition also includes a foreword by Hilary Jay, Executive Director of the Design Center at Philadelphia University and an introduction by Philip Yenawine, former Director of Education for New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Wink: Warren Muller is a must-have for collectors and admirers of Muller’s work, as well as anyone curious for a look into the creative process of this singular contemporary artist.
A self-described Luminary, Warren Muller and his partner RJ Thornburg created Bahdeebahdu, a working studio and showroom located in Philadelphia. Featuring Muller’s fantastic illuminated sculptures alongside contemporary art and design, Bahdeebahdu has become an international destination for artists, architects, designers, developers and similar visionaries.
