In conjunction with Christina Kruse: Base and Balance, Helwaser Gallery is pleased to host an Exhibition Walkthrough with John Zinsser, a lecturer of art history at The New School.
Base and Balance, a solo show by Christina Kruse, exhibits the artist's body of sculptures and drawings for the first time. Building on her earlier photographic and collage works, the exhibited pieces introduce a spatial dimension to her practice. Kruse’s artistic practice draws connections between geometric and organic forms, thriving on the notion of construction; bringing together multiple materials into cohesive abstract configurations.
Picked by the Editors of ArtNet as not-to-miss, Wallpaper* Magazine describes Kruse's works as "sharing a natural affinity with Bauhaus master [Oskar Schlemmer]." The speaker John Zinsser will share his reading of Kruse’s creative process and journey, the ways she understands European modernism, and how she finds “personal meaning in forms that resonate with us on different levels, moving towards re-invention and re-affirmation.”
