North from Here

Peter Blum Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by John Zurier entitled, North from Here, at 176 Grand Street, New York. This is the artist’s fifth solo show with the gallery. The exhibition runs through November 9.

The title of the exhibition, North from Here, is shared by a series of three large paintings. For Zurier, the north evokes stark austerity and desolation; it is inhospitable and hostile, yet terrifyingly beautiful nature.

Zurier’s paintings of atmospheric color fields examine qualities of evanescent light as well as solid radiance. Offering nuanced examples of the medium’s possibilities, Zurier pares down painting to the essentials with a sensory and allusive richness embedded in their asperity. The structural vocabularies and limited palette emphasize the beauty inherent in nature without reference to landscape. This subtle beauty is apparent in the subdued visual incidents of delicate inconsistencies in the executions of lines, marks, hues, and margins while demonstrating a deliberate emphasis on the wholeness of chromatic surface.
