    Gary Kuehn is an important representative of »Process Art« that radically altered the notion of art again in the 1960s. In his sculptures, Kuehn questions the authority of material and fathoms the relation of limitation and freedom. Since the beginnings, his artistic career is based in the use of simple forms, such as circle, square or triangle, in conjunction with his interest in mechanical and industrial materials. The geometrical forms made of metal, fiberglass or wood are often exposed to the masses’ distorting forces or to a kinetic energy, they are pushed aside, knotted, jerked. Kuehn thus always achieves an emotional value within his formally abstract works.
