Please join us Thursday, October 11 from 6-9pm for the Opening Reception of Bruno Kurz's inaugural North American exhibition, 'Translucent Horizons'.
Bruno Kurz will be in attendance Saturday, October 20, at Odon Wagner Contemporary.
The Argyll (2012) and Hebrides Cycles (2001 and 2012) were inspired by journies KURZ made in the winter of 1999 and then 2012 to the Hebrides, a cluster of islands off the coast of Scotland. In winter months Atlantic storms pound the western coast of Scotland and the days are short. Light changes quickly, clouds dart overhead, winds howl, tempestuous seas surround these sparsely populated isles. These are the impressions that inspired the new Argyll Cycle (2012).
The series is characterized by expressive paintwork in which cracked surfaces, layers of colour and traces of pastose serve as contrast to a metallic background. Horizontal layers provide the colours a clear compositional order. The recent works from the Hebrides Cycle exude again their typical sense of contemplative calm. At the same time, their colour space appears to pulsate in fields of light. Reflective surfaces – consisting of resin, India ink glazes or transparent silk gauzes layered over a vertically delineated metal background – afford the works a striking luminosity and shimmering colour spectrum.
