Artist's Opening Reception: Simone Kappeler with Esther Woerdehoff Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, April 08, 2014
Through America:  Works from the 1980's

Through April 9, 2014

Cocktail reception with the artist:
Wednesday, April 9
6:00 - 8:00 pm

Paris-based Galerie Esther Woerdehoff to present the work of Swiss-artist Simone Kappeler in conjunction with New York-based De Buck Gallery.  Through America is the photographic summary of a rad trip that the young Kappeler took through the United States in 1981.  The work reveals American Culture through the eyes of an outsider.  Images are playful and brilliantly colored.  Often there is a diagonal composition to the frames which lends to a sense of excitement, and the anticipation of new discovery.  This lends an eternal freshness to the work that is otherwise nostalgic.  Time impacts our viewing, and now more than 30 years after the photos were made they remind us of a simpler time.  The work follows that of another Swiss-born photographer, Robert Frank's who's The Americans functioned in a similar way decades earlier.  Kappeler's work adds another meaningful chapter to the ongoing visual history of American culture.
