Galerie Haas AG is pleased to announce the exhibition Per Kirkeby, running from March 18 to April 30, 2021. On display will be works on Masonite created between 2012 and 2014. This is the first solo exhibition of the Danish artist (1938-2018) at the Zurich gallery.
Per Kirkeby was a multifaceted artist throughout his life. His œuvre includes painting as well as poetry, film, architecture, sculpture and printmaking. From 1957 to 1964 he first studied geology, but after numerous journeys and expeditions he took the path of an artist. Always drawing on his rich sources of inspiration, Kirkeby combines a scientifical objectivity with an artistical creativity, reflecting on what he has experienced and witnessed in an aesthetically unique form.
