PER KIRKEBY
Recent Works on Masonite
15 September through 22 October 2005
UPPER EAST SIDE, NEW YORK
 
Per Kirkeby has works in a variety of media and is widely acclaimed as a painter, sculptor, filmmaker, and writer. In the early Sixties, while studying geology in university, he traveled to the Arctic and Greenland on numerous expeditions. These early fieldwork journeys provided source material for him as an artist and the idea of landscape, sedimentation, and layers has become key elements in his work. Kirkeby's paintings on masonite make clear his deep interest in these ideas.
