The Venusian World Diorama

For many years Ehlenberger has created sculptures that explore his Venusian world: 3D landscape wall sculptures depicting luminous watery and mountainous scenes, free-standing sculptures of exotic glass, metal and neon flowers and gardens and, of course, his well known, other-worldly luminous glass and neon Jellyfish. The culmination of this work are his diorama sculpture installations in which he combines multiple series of sculptures to generate life-size scenes from his Venusian World.

The recent renovation of a large historic church in New Orleans as his new art studio and studio gallery has provided Ehlenberger with an opportunity to further develop the diorama art form on a large scale.The focus of this new gallery is a large scale Venusian Garden diorama work-in-progress suggested by the mock-up above (photographs of the installation are coming very soon). The diorama includes eight foot tall luminous landscape wall sculptures in a style similar to his "Landscapes in Chinese Style" that form a backdrop to the Venusian Gardens developed in a style inspired by the artist's love of Japanese and Chinese gardens. For Ehlenberger, a large part of the joy of the diorama installation lies in the interchangeable character of the work that allows for constant changes and developments in the work so that the diorama grows and evolves paralleling his explorations as an artist and sculptor.
