Sculptures of Furniture: A Windsor Alphabet Christopher Kurtz at Patrick Parrish Gallery
Patrick Parrish Gallery is pleased to present Sculptures of Furniture: A Windsor Alphabet, our inaugural solo exhibition by New York artist and designer Christopher Kurtz. Drawing from the iconic eighteenth-century Birdcage Windsor chair, Kurtz extrapolates and reimagines the chair’s woodworking techniques and decorative conventions as monumental objects. The Windsor form is dissected into a taxonomy of parts, which are inverted, augmented, and rearranged in order to challenge our relationship with the objects in our built environment. Amplified from traditional furniture ornamentation into conspicuous forms on an architectural scale, Kurtz creates sculptures whose subject, like furniture, is shifted back to the human figure.
