STARMAN & LEFT ON READ
H Gallery with DabArt is pleased to present 2 brand new Exhibitions. STARMAN & LEFT ON READ.
The first is STARMAN. A solo exhibition of photographs from famed fashion and music photographer, Markus Klinko.
Though synonymous with David Bowie, this time the title STARMAN is an ode to the man behind this epic collection of photos. Markus Klinko has shot the some of worlds most memorable photographs featuring the worlds most recognized stars. Our exhibit includes large scale, high impact portraits including Pharrell, JLO, Pam Anderson and of course David Bowie. STARMAN opens just time to commemorate both Bowie’s birthday and the anniversary of his passing.
Born in Switzerland of French, Italian, Jewish, and Hungarian descent, Klinko spent his early years training to become a classical harp soloist. He studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris. Later, Klinko signed an exclusive recording contract with EMI Classics, as well as a management contract with Columbia Artists Management. He received the Grand Prix de Disque for his recording of French harp music, with members of the orchestra of the Paris Opera Bastille. Klinko performed in recitals and as a featured soloist with symphony orchestras around the world. He was also regularly featured in such publications as Vogue Italia, Vanity Fair, GQ, The New York Times, Madame Figaro, Stereo Review, and Ongaku no Tomo.
The second of 2 Solo Exhibitions opening at H Gallery is Curtis Taylor’s LEFT ON READ. A play on words used to describe the challenges of a societal shift happening at the moment. Taylor‘s new 3 Dimensional series of wall sculptures features his signature high end design elements paired with the nostalgic colors and shapes of his childhood.
“My work acknowledges the contrasts between hard edge abstraction’s austere formalism and the expressive textures and luminescent color fields of abstract expressionism. I transform the shapes created through a generative process into large-scale, hard-edge abstract sculptures which complete each installation by expanding the conversation between artworks and reiterating forms and colors contained within the 3-dimensional works.”
