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.

Friedrich Kunath – “We Better Stop Pretending”

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!

Friedrich Kunath at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles now through September 30, 2010

On my recent trip to Los Angeles, I discovered the wonderful world of German artist Friedrich Kunath.  The 36 year old artist has a retrospective of his work at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and I loved it!  In the lobby, there are about 50 works by Kunath and as you can see, the colors he uses are vivid as he juxtaposes bright images alongside love and despair.  For fans of artists such as Joshua Petker, you’ll love Kunath’s work.  The exhibit is over on September 30, 2010 so don’t miss it!
