Gremillion &Co. Fine Art, Inc. presents Thomas Zitzwitz: Jennifer Juniper opening reception
Gremillion &Co. Fine Art, Inc. will present Jennifer Juniper, an exhibition of recent paintings by German artist, Thomas Zitzwitz.
Zitzwitz's Spray or Crumple Paintings mark a departure within his own artistic practice. Towards the end of the 20th century, he concentrated to an increasing extent on painterly techniques using interference pigments, thickened with transparent acrylic gel, that were applied to the canvas with squeegees.
The bright, color-doused surfaces of these pictures, which are divided into two or three differently structured fields by hard horizontal edges, change their colorfulness depending on the perspective of the beholder and the light conditions. When Zitzwitz started working on his first Spray Paintings shortly after, in early 2008, this was a conscious turn away from the "glossy, thicker surface" of painting with interference pigments towards a more "formal and less associative" effect.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 13.
