The magnet paintings rank among Nick Darmstaedter's most iconic works, deeply rooted in the tradition of American contemporary art while remaining mischievously playful. Arrangements of found refrigerator magnets are configured on galvanized steel that at times echo color field painting while in other compositions they appear as pure sinuous pattern. Like Mike Kelley's button paintings, Darmstaedter's magnet works are assembled using cast-off mementos of American kitch. Here, Darmstaedter has created his first original magnet in bronze. Each magnet comes with a signed certificate of authenticity. Bronze will patina over time.
