Charles Kurre / A Certainty of Measure

Opening Saturday, January 16, 1 – 5PM

By appointment

It’s here. The exhibition opens this weekend. and I invite everyone to come see the new work.  Because of the ongoing issues with Covid-19 there won’t be the traditional opening social event, rather I’ll be asking folks to make an appointment see the show in person.  I’ll be at the gallery, every Saturday from 1 – 5 PM and every Sunday from 11 AM – 3 PM, until Sunday, February 7th. To schedule a time, contact me directly at charleskurre.art@gmail.com. The time slots are an hour long, and masks are required in the gallery.

The gallery is at 419 E Roosevelt St, just south of downtown. Eye Lounge is on the southeast corner of Roosevelt and 5th Street, and the entrance is off 5th Street. For those who can’t make it in person, an upcoming Kurre.art News post will include a digital version of the show.

I look forward to sharing the work with you!

Thanks for reading.

Dreams of the Night Sleeper

ihet – november/december 2018 – issue 236

 During one of my recent fits of organization, I pulled out several never completed canvasses. Originally these two were intended for exhibition at Perimeter Gallery, Chicago and for reasons that now escape me, their development was problematic, the paintings weren’t finished, and didn’t end up being shown. After, I put them aside and began a new group of work. Revisiting these artifacts of creative effort, their intent is reimagined, guided by the instruments of memory and experience. A dilemma resolved. A quiet and measured chronicle woven by the force of time.

      The pragmatic affair # 239                Desire’s mnemonic memoir #233

Transformation is the heart of it. It’s the gentle tug, becoming a push then a shove. A feeling of urgency driving the narrative forward.

Long press for sitter frozen #37

The  cartography of  my visual language is informed by the tangled and knotted rhythms of nature. An exploration into the fabric of remembrance. The evolution of change. The reordering of perception. 

Evolution circus #61

Then there’s the bits and pieces. In these instances harvested from my own manipulations. An orange tree remnant from the garden, on an image of trees in Superstition Mountains, (assembled from multiple inkjet prints), and photographed.

Apple tree remnant, also from the garden, on an image of trees in Zion National Park, (assembled from multiple inkjet prints), and photographed.
