DESCRIPTION

Mark Wolfe Contemporary Art presents ADVENTURE/CHANCE, new works by Shawn Kuruneru and Gudrun Mertes-Frady.  Both artists are based in Brooklyn, NY.

Working in abstract expressionism, Kuruneru and Mertes-Frady each explore structure, form, and mark-making in various media. Their works seek intuitive responses to abstract forms, and a balance between physical and psychological presence.

In addition to his ink and acrylic works on linen, for this exhibition Kuruneru will create a custom installation made up of millions of small ink beads that will spread across the gallery to create an abstract drawing on the floor. The ink beads are various small mixed media (couscous, pebbles, clay) painted with black ink. Each ink bead represents one dot mark and a group of marks creates shapes and images as the viewer connects the dots together. 

Originally from Toronto, Canada, Shawn Kuruneru has had solo exhibitions at Ribordy Contemporary in Geneva, SUI, Blackston Gallery, New York, NY, and Night Gallery, Los Angeles, CA. His work has been featured in numerous publications, including the New York Times, Interview Magazine, Domus Magazine and Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art.

Originally from Cologne, Germany, Gudrun Mertes-Frady lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, and has exhibited extensively, particularly in New York City and throughout Germany. Her works reside in a number of public collections.
