Kevin Zucker - Somewhere apart

4 May – 30 June 2004
Tues–Sat 11–19, closed holidays
(in June open Mon–Fri 11–19)

On 4 May 2004 at 18.30, Galleria Paolo Curti/Annamaria Gambuzzi & Co. presents the first Italian exhibition very young American artist Kevin Zucker.

Born in New York in 1976, where he lives and works, Kevin Zucker studied at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence (Rhode Island) and at Columbia University School of Arts in New York.

Kevin Zucker combines painting with computer drafting to obtain paintings that represent architectural interiors or details of them, resembling a kind of abstract mapping of space. The grids generated by the computer and transferred onto canvas surround the few objects present, making them appear almost suspended in space.
The world depicted by Kevin Zucker in his paintings appears schematic and simplified, with pale, neutral colors that make it seem very distant from real life and human emotions.
But upon closer examination one notices that the irregular, fragmentary surface of the canvases undermines the mathematical, geometric perfection of the world initially constructed by Zucker.
Just as chance and imperfections find their way into the sterile computer-generated images, so reality finds its way into the world of ideas.
These imperfections appear as reminders of what the computer tries to negate: humanity.

The works of Kevin Zucker have been seen in solo and group shows in a number of galleries in the United States and Europe, as well as group shows at the New Museum of Contemporary Art and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, both in New York.

The artist will be at the opening.
