Description of the Artwork “Metal God: Icon in bottle caps”

Automatic translation

The image, measuring 140cm x 140cm with 2630 used bottle caps, which were attached to the double-coated and black-framed wooden panel (10mm) using a special technique, depicts an American heavy metal god.The details of the portrait are remarkably precise. Every element of the characteristic facial features is masterfully designed. You can literally feel the intensity of his gaze as he looks at the viewer, and the energy and passion he radiated on stage seems to seep through the image.As a unique piece from 2015, this bottle cap image is not only a work of art, but also a powerful tribute to a legend of rock 'n' roll. The legacy of heavy metal lives on in this work, and it reminds us that his music and personality are timeless.The work weighs around 15 kilos and has pre-drilled holes in the upper part of the image for attachment.

About the artist

Henning Leuschner was born in 1968 in the Sauerland and has lived in Cologne since 1989. Before working as a visual and freelance artist, the trained social worker worked since 1996 as a department head in youth welfare at the LVR, as facility manager of an independent youth welfare provider and as a freelance systemic supervisor, coach and organizational developer in the Rhineland. Since he began his artistic activity, his artistic work has included portraits, still lifes, landscapes and city impressions made from used bottle caps. As a passionate music lover and world traveler, he finds his inspiration at concerts/music festivals and while traveling. The autodidact's art was created in 2013 during a garden party - so the artist did not come to art, but rather art came to him; many leftover bottle caps resulted in a picture that was ultimately expanded on the garden table and glued together in its perfection. Further experimental art objects followed until it found its perfection in the process of creating the pictures. As an upcycling artist, his works are characterized by the urge to sustainably combine art and life. Henning Leuschner emphatically describes his bottle cap art as a human cultural product and the result of a creative drinking process - an analogue art in a digital age. The starting point of every work of art is an intensive encounter with life events that the artist internalizes and for which he creates a huge collection of motifs from thousands of bottle caps. These seamlessly put together result in a unique work of art with a state of perfection and complete harmony. Henning Leuschner's works do not require any theoretical accompaniment. The overwhelming presence of the works of art does not ask about school or concept. They grab the viewer and make a lasting impression. Changes in light and perspective lead to ever new perceptions. Each of his works of art completes a journey that finds its compressed conclusion in a single scene in which each individual bottle cap has lived its own and individual story during the tasting process. Each picture thus consists of thousands of individual stories that the viewer can only guess at. The works are created in the work studio at Lichtstrasse 46 and this is part of the studio community “Refugium”, located in the heart of Ehrenfeld, the trendy and artistic district of Cologne between Live Music Hall and the Vulkanhalle.
