Claude Zervas: Starlings


Greg Kucera Gallery Pioneer Square
Sept 11–Oct 23, Tuesdays–Saturdays


Recommended by Katie Kurtz

“Conscious thought is so overrated,” Claude Zervas says while we’re discussing his recent body of work. Starlings is a series of thickly layered oil paintings that—if anything—are a meditation on the fickle, tricky, and long-drying medium. Zervas has always leaned more toward minimalism with 3D and video work stripping nature and science to their most essential components and presented in abstracted ways. Zervas returned to painting about five years ago starting with pen and ink drawings, continuing on to acrylic, then—encouraged in part by Joe Park—landing on oils which he described as “a revelation.” The months-long process of layering rich pigment and cutting it away allows Zervas to have new ideas about the work while stripping it of any overt meaning.
