Karl Momen is a painter and sculptor who is one of the last living artists trained in the Bauhaus movement. In America, Momen is best known as the creator of the epic 87-foot Metaphor: The Tree of Utah sculpture located adjacent to Interstate 80 in the stark Bonneville Salt Flats region of Utah. This suite from the late 1990s demonstrates Momen’s primary visual language of formalism, simplistic compositions, and color through his symbolic interpretations of some of Shakespeare’s most famous plays.
