About this work:
This mesmerizing print is part of Mikloweit's 'Nonlinear' series which he’s been evolving since 2014 as part of his larger framework 'New Ambiguity' (2012–ongoing). The focus of 'Nonlinear' is on the conceptual space between representational and non- representational art and the US military medal system. In an edition of five prints only Mikloweit produced this sought-after work exclusively for Muetos Gallery.
With the 'Nonlinear' series Mikloweit comments on the broader genre of the stripe painting and draws a direct line from there to digital representation files of the US military medal ribbon system. The system becomes his raw material, with results of stunningly radiating fine art prints of popping colours.
Conceptually, 'Nonlinear' instigates a swift destabilisation of representational and non- representational artistic notions alike and shifts both into a new space that of an endless, brain freezing neither-nor loop: The space of a 'New Ambiguity'.
'New Ambiguity' is acts of speculative brutalism rooted in a rationale between Sturtevant and the Situationist International.

Sascha Mikloweit studied philosophy and history at the University of Munster (WWU), Fine Arts at the Art Academy Munster and the Art Academy Dusseldorf with Georg Herold, before completing his MA Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, UK.
His practice involves multi-layered, process-oriented research across a spectrum of media manifestations, which decidedly blur the boundaries of traditional and novel fields including sculpture, graphics, sound art, photography, happening, performance, media art and digital art.
Employing a modus operandi that perceives its social, historical and architectural environment, Sascha Mikloweit creates complex, experiential, immersive settings, whose post-conceptual vantage point frequently open up a zone of dialogue between the physical interior-exterior and the virtual realm.
He’s currently artistic research fellow within the one year long framework of the Annual Artis-In-Residence Program at the Museum of Mineralogy of the University of Bonn 2019 /20.
