Photos by G. Art by Friedrich Kunath.
There’s a lot going on in Friedrich Kunath’s latest exhibit “The Temptation To Exist (May Contain Nuts)” at Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York. From the carpeted gallery to the exquisite imagery in his paintings, you should not miss this show.
What is not discernible from this photo is the fact that the canvas you see here is enormous and is painted to look like notebook paper. The words “We better stop pretending” are painted at the top and in the center is a gorgeous ‘daydream.’
I love Friedrich Kunath’s work for the diversity and the vivid colors he uses. An artist friend of mine that I love introduced me to his work and coincidentally, on two different trips to Los Angeles, I was able to catch an exhibit of Kunath’s at the Hammer Museum (which was excellent) and on another trip Friedrich was doing a book signing at a gallery. He has the distinction of possibly being the only “selfie” I’ve ever taken with an artist that features my parents in the background of the photo! You may not realize the significance of that now, but one day you will. Well done!
“The Temptation To Exist (May Contain Nuts)” by Friedrich Kunath at Andrea Rosen Gallery (located at 525 West 24th Street) is on display though April 26, 2014. Don’t miss it!
