Kurt Herrmann creates both figurative and abstract work, but above all he is a colorist at heart. He intends for his paintings to radiate across the room but to also whisper quietly beside the viewer, with big sound and silence. His shapes, forms, and colors have been extracted from his own surroundings and memories, but also from places he’s always dreamed to see. Sometimes included in his paintings are tree trunks, winter skies, deer legs, the bright pink from a watermelon and Greek islands. “The colors, silence, space, seasons, landscape, even the rednecks impact everything I make. It’s inescapable.”
Herrmann was born in and resides in the mountains of Lock Haven, PA and obtained a BFA from Lock Haven University. He has exhibited around the world, and most recently at Scope Miami Beach, FL; Penny Contemporary, AU; The Other Art Fair, AU, 12 Gallery, NZ. He has also exhibited at Sidewinder Gallery, IL, which was featured in Time Out Chicago and at James Oliver Gallery, PA, featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
