Yuri Kuper – Brush #1

Mix media on wood
22 x 17,5 cm



Born 1940, Moscow, Russia, Lives and works in Moscow, Russia.

His art extolls the shapes of « unopened » things, « it comes from the eye and seaks to the eye », according to Rilke’s beautiful words as regards Rodin. The pictorial space created by Yuri Kuper is original in that the empty spaces are more important than the filled ones, absence is more significant than presence… The world he offers, or rather suggests, never provides a visible resistance, or so little : its architecture is real.
