‘The point just beyond my focus is often where the most interesting things are happening. I try to leave room for this space in the painting’. – Kurt Oppermann
‘Limits and Range’ is a new body of work by artist Kurt Oppermann. These abstract paintings at times allude to landscapes. The horizontal line is a reoccurring motif used to hold the composition together, a backdrop, a device that allows something else to happen, something not initially understood. Oppermann uses paint to explore methods of expression. Testing the limits of representation, line, form and colour play off each other in surprising ways. With a desire to combine contrasting elements, the paintings seek to find balance within the discordant. Process marks imbued with energy offer many points of departure suggesting that the limit and range are yet undecided.
