Works by Peter Krausz at Forum Gallery
NEW YORK CITY – Forum Gallery will show an exhibition of paintings by Montreal-based painter Peter Krausz through October 26. “Peter Krausz: ” will be the first New York show for the artist, who was born in Romania in 1946.
Using a classical painting technique called secco, Krausz obtains colors by mixing pure pigments with egg emulsion applied on a wall-like surface. In this series of work, Krausz is inspired by Gustav Mahler’s “Das Lied von der Erde,” ().
Krausz completed his studies at the Bucharest Academy of Fine Arts in 1969. In 1991, he joined the faculty at the University of Montreal where he is now a tenured professor of fine art. His works are in many Canadian collections, including Musee d’art Contemporain, Montreal, Musee du Quebec and Banque Royale du Canada.
Forum Gallery is at 745 Fifth Avenue at 57th Street. For information, 212-355-4545.
