Paul Kuhn Gallery
February 4 - February 25, 2017
Opening Reception February 4, 2:00 PM
Paul Kuhn Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new photographs by well-known Calgary photographer, Gerard Yunker. The photographs in this exhibition result from the artists' visit to Iceland in July 2016, where he moved clockwise from the west Fjords across around the entire island. Long and horizontal in format, the photographs depict the stark geometries of Iceland. While rooted deeply in nature, the images become strange intimate abstractions of an almost unknown landscape of frigid metallic skies, rock formations and cloud banks. Working instinctively, with no preconceived art direction, Yunker shot thousands of photographs. The result is an exhibition of ten inspirational images that amplify the extreme and surreal clarity of this pristine landscape.
