Reception: Thursday, September 27, 7 - 10 PM
FB Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new works by New York based artist Miljan Suknovic. On view will be a range of new works on paper and canvas in which Suknovic continues to translate color and line into luminous and flawlessly calibrated abstractions. Suknovic’s technique is straightforward – by using a brush and masking tape he moves color around in controlled areas. Sometimes the tape has been previously painted and used to create other art works. It then returns to blank paper and creates a new original pictorial concept. Suknovic creates a spectacle of great beauty, in which the painting alternately offers resistance to the eye or pulls the viewer into glowing fields of brilliant depth.
Miljan Suknovic studied art and architecture in Belgrade, Prague, Florence (graduated 2005), Hamburg (DAAD Scholarship for Artist) and New York. His work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in galleries in Italy, France, Serbia, Greece, Germany and the US. His first solo show in America was held by Union Gallery New York in 2008. He has also created large scale mural paintings in Florence and Bologna. He currently lives and works in New York.
