Reverb: a persistence of sound, or an echo after a sound is initiated.
Representational images such as a teacup or a paint jar at first glance seem like straightforward and immediate subject matter to the artist in his studio. Instead, Kurth’s skilful and subtle paintings are deeply committed to close observation and theory of the way we relate to and see the everyday ‘things’ which populate our lives.
Kurth’s practice is concerned with semiotic concepts of the signifier and signified and draws on Laconian theory where the symbolic and the real act as enduring corner stones, which he unwraps (and refolds), in his approach to representational painting.
