Len Klikunas paints minimalist artworks to modify experienced reality through visual perception. The Blocks series is a mix of art and architecture, hovering between painting and sculpture. It employs shizen (自然): the Japanese concept of naturalness; absence of pretense or artificiality. Material is stretched over a supporting three-dimensional framework, like a tent, and coated with paint.
The work is characterized by “mindful artlessness” and simplicity. Understated and subtle, the work doesn’t only refer to itself, and it doesn’t explain everything.

Len Klikunas was born in 1944 in Chicago, Illinois. Klikunas constructs altered three dimensional canvases and paints them to modify experienced reality through visual perception. The "Blocks" series is a mix of art and architecture, hovering between minimalist painting and sculpture. It employs shizen (自然): the Japanese concept of naturalness, absence of pretense or artificiality.
He explores how to articulate the tension of materials and limits of multi-dimensionality in sculptural paintings. Material is stretched over a supporting three-dimensional framework, like a tent, and coated with paint. Klikunas lines his perforated black artworks with black gauze in order to keep a darkness behind the openings, creating a sense of depth.
The work is characterized by “mindful artlessness” and simplicity and is understated and subtle.
