Coinciding with Art Basel 2018, von Bartha is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by New York-based artist Landon Metz, running from June 12 – July 21 / 2018.

About

Landon Metz’s practice revolves around the activity of painting, yet also incorporates sculpture, sound and performance. Using dye on unprimed canvas, Metz explores the inherent properties of both materials, as each develop autonomously, following his initial application. Working horizontally, the perimeters set by the artist see the pigment merge with the fibres of the plane to create organic, flowing forms. As a result, his technique shifts the focus from a specific gesture towards an overall experience of form, colour and hue.

About the artist

Landon Metz was born in Phoenix, USA in 1985 and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He has appeared in solo exhibitions in the USA, Canada, Norway, Denmark and Italy. In 2014, Metz was the artist in residence at the ADN Collection in Bolzano, Italy. Current solo exhibitions include Museo Pietro Canonica a Villa Borghese in Rome, Italy (2018). Upcoming solo exhibitions include Sean Kelly Gallery, New York (2019).
