Art In America

Eugene Von Bruenchenhein

at Maccarone,
630 Greenwich St.

Milwaukee's homegrown, self-taught Eugene Von Bruenchenhein (1910-1983) has received some international attention recently, with a potent display of his paintings and photos at last year's Venice Biennale. This survey features ceramic sculptures, vases and other objects, as well as 2-D works, and centers on the artist's paintings of architectural follies, which resemble colorful skyscrapers-some with funky homemade frames. There's also a selection of his hand-painted, kitchen-oven-fired ceramic vases. A number of small ceramic pieces resemble shrunken heads, and a particularly intriguing assortment of photos feature intimate and eroticized images of his wife and lifelong muse, Marie.
