Christopher Kurtz creates elegantly elemental furniture with strong sculptural implications. For example, his recent series of cabinets, including "Linenfold Armoire", which was made for Objects: USA 2020, is loosely inspired by medieval carving, as these works are abstractions of classical drapery, executed with molding planes. Kurtz extends this idea, profiling the façade of the cabinet as if it were fluting on the shaft of a highly complex column. The rippling, rhythmic articulation reaches from bottom to top, yields a spectacular view of the one-of-a-kind curvilinear composition.
Please note this work is currently a part of the Objects: USA exhibition at R & Company. As such, the work will need to remain on view for the duration of the exhibition and will be available for shipment in September. The piece ships from New York, NY, directly from the seller. Shipping and tax (except eligible FL tax) will be charged separately.
