About

A 2012 graduate of Hunter College's sizzling hot MFA program, Kahn's work came to my attention at Rachel Uffner Gallery in New York earlier this year in the context of a two-person show. He arrives at his jigsaw-puzzle paintings by reassembling a larger canvas he has cut up. At a distance, Kahn's work reads as sculptural. On closer inspection, however, you can see that it registers a subtle, but visually complex, use of color. There is a certain instability latent in his pictures...as if they could fall apart at anytime. Kahn is clearly aware of his predecessors' attempts to wrestle with shape and the picture plane, but there is a lot more going on his paintings than structural gymnastics. I am excited to see how his work will develop.
