Jennifer Kostuik Gallery. Sculptural works by Arno Kortschot


Jennifer Kostuik Gallery is pleased to formally  introduce the 3-dimensional sculptures of Vancouver based, Dutch artist, Arno Kortschot. Kortschot searches for the connection of form and material in relation to both natural and man made environments. The geometric shapes employed by the artist are a reflection of both architectural elements and the rhythms and colors of Nature. His affection for minimalism creates a strong urge to fill spaces with objects that are stripped of all meaning to exist purely as a spatial concept. Inspired by the history of geometric abstraction that can be found in the art and architecture of his native country, The Netherlands, Kortschot creates sculptures that are meticulously placed side by side, are free standing, or lean at an angle against a wall. Kortschot shapes his ideas into sculptures with bright color and often with a repetition of the same shapes together. In some works, he has incorporated LED light to allow the form to glow with color from the inside out. In others, a slight tension exists where the sculptures almost touch. Shadow play is integral to the entire reading of all his installations. The painstaking craftsmanship of straight lines and angles is embraced with an artistic style in which materiality is central to Kortschot’s work, zinc being his primary medium. The patina of zinc, created over time through air, the environment, and also especially by a person’s touch, brings out the unique character and is considered as part of the art. Kortschot sees his chosen medium having a timeless and imperfect character enabling the sculptures to blend with the work’s surroundings, allowing the viewing of his art as a visceral, physical experience. These objects are directions to see things differently and to experience the beauty of minimal concepts; To recognize, to appreciate and to be inspired to change the way of looking at things and your daily surroundings. In fact, they will give the opportunity to travel further than any landscape will do.  – Arno Kortschot     To view the entire show, please click here: View Show
