This original painting is signed on the front by the artist.
Paul Kremer’s solo exhibition at Sorry We’re Closed in Brussels is now on view through March 18, 2017.
Art historian Alex Bacon writes, "The strength of Paul Kremer’s art, which stems from its organic subject matter, exemplifies [the vacillation between biomorphic and geometric forms pioneered by artists like Josef Albers, Max Bill, and Ellsworth Kelly, among others.] Abstracting from familiar forms, even if taking them far beyond immediate recognizability, enables Kremer, as it did those historical artists, to harness the sensations that arise from our day-to-day encounters — whether the impressive profile of a boulder or the sensual curve of a hip."
Crevice 16, original paper studies is comprised of original paintings on paper from Kremer's newest body of work, in which he depicts various landforms, emphasizing mass and altitude through simple geometric imagery in a limited palette. Crevice 16, original paper studies was created by the artist in his Houston studio. Each painting is signed by the artist and contains variants as it was painted by hand.
