André Kertész at Stephen Bulger Gallery: Top 10 Exhibitions to Watch

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 6, 2014

André Kertész

Places and Things

 

Through February 22, 2014


 

Photographic master and icon André Kertész made introspective work that mirrored his persona, drew out the character of his subject, and questioned the existence of all things.  The work is profound and concise.  It is spiritual too, and each frame feels full of something undefinable. 


The exhibition includes some classics: Chez Mondrain, Paris, 1926Mondiran's Glasses and Pipe, Paris, 1926 and Fork, Paris, 1928; as well as a nice selection of graphic cityscapes, dramatic still lives and interiors, and a few never before seen late works from the Estate.  Smoke in Toronto, 1979 is an almost mirrored image of a factory and is shadow; New York [interior w/ drop cloths], 1975 is rough and haunted; and a group of SX-70 Polaroids are surreal and surprising.  

 

Stephen Bulger Gallery has represented the Estate of André Kertész since 2003.  The exhibition draws from various periods of Kertész's oeuvre.  The grouping represents in whole a sampling from the artist's life in Hungary through 1925, to Paris 1925-1936, and finally to new York where he lived until his death in 1985.  Together these works reveal the genius and sentiment of a man and the moments he saw that one could never articulate in words.
