Description

Sarah Myerscough Gallery

Edition of 5. Made during lockdown, ‘Headrest’ uses the universal image of a pillow, carved from a block of lime wood, and evokes both a resting and comfort, with an escapist utopia. Christopher Kurtz’s pieces are born from a sculptural motivation, working intuitively to create poignant and poetic forms that respond to a personal narrative and powerful emotional response from the viewer. Kurtz was shortlisted for the Loewe Craft Prize 2018, received the prestigious Louis Comfort Tiffany Award in 2005, and in 2007 he received a New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Award (Lily Auchincloss fellow). He has exhibited as part of Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design at the Museum of Arts and Design, USA.
