Places And Things
American artist John Zurier presents his second solo exhibition at Galerie Nordenhake Stockholm with a group of paintings that continue to explore the interplay between surface and pictorial space.
Zurier originally studied to become a landscape architect. His interest drew particularly on Japanese gardens and an attraction to what he perceived as places of solitude, silence, reflection and refuge. In the end he found that painting could embody this state of mind more clearly than any particular physical place. The paintings themselves allude to and offer a spatial dimension – a place.
