What art have I seen?

Robert Morris at Monika Spruth Philomene Magers

I remember seeing work at the Fattoria di Celle that were quite like these, using encaustic. The felt Stars and Stripes surmounted by Eagles are deeply political. The work fit into rooms like altars in side chapels. The textures are a bit like ornate classical picture frames, but the textures are made of the remains of machinery and war, and the impressions of hands punching and ripping at the material.
