Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to announce a new exhibition at the Bridgehampton Gallery, Floats, recent acrylic constructions by Christian Haub.
Christian Haub's floats consist of dancing stripes of colored light made with the most mundane of materials- strips of acrylic - opaque, transparent, and florescent. He exploits natural light and the innate properties of the pigment in acrylic to create floating layers of color. As Cate McQuaid says The Boston Post, these ethereal, hovering of colored bands "glow like stained glass, but more delicately...They're hard to define but magical to see".
Christian Haub received a BA in art history from Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey. He was awarded the Rome Prize for painting in 1984 at the American Academy in Rome, Italy, and has exhibited extensively throughout the United States and in Europe and lives and works in New York City. In 2013, he was the subject of an extensive interview in Bomb Magazine by Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe.
