This event has ended.

Gasser Grunert presents an exhibition of work by Blair Thurman, “Aus unseren Kellern” (From Our Cellars).

Blair Thurman, a ‘Pop’ sensitive, and his work, a haphazard reclaiming of the ‘Look of Cool’. His method is gaze and memory rather than cold analysis. More like the free associations of a Beat poet on the road, happening upon Gonzo situations and structures, awash in neon, remembering a childhood of Hot-Wheels and model-glue, suspended in a haze of martinis, coffee, pain-killers, anti-histamine and Thera-Flu. [...] The aesthetics of punk underground trash... a tube of Testors in each nostril... hurtling through space. The loner as Silver Surfer confronting the post-punk existential. For me the creature is our dark nature... our subjective selves. The dark self on the road to nowhere.
-Steven Parrino, 2003

Thurman has exhibited widely in Europe and is known for his large neon-installations and paintings on shaped canvases and wood.
