In John Zurier’s works, seemingly monochromatic surfaces evolve into visual poetry. His language is minimal and at the same time very distinct. Inspired by observations of natural phenomena, light conditions and colour, the works convey a characteristic calmness and purity.

About

While working with Niels Borch Jensen Editions in the summer of 2016, Zurier investigated the technique of line etching as a way of drawing on the plate: ‘What I was looking for in these prints was a slow and variable light. What I found was a way to bring drawings to the surface.’ He effortlessly translates his artistic practice as a painter from canvas to copper plate to make the very process of printmaking visible: The marks in the plate, executed by brush or needle, become evident; the force with which the paper is pressed into the indentations is almost palpable. The three-dimensionality of ink sitting on paper, the rich texture of the surfaces, the physical material at hand becomes the topic of a meditation on color and surface.
