Wolf Kahn, by Justin Spring. 1996.
For some reason I have been looking at Wolf Kahn's early works, mostly in my copy of the book by Justin Spring. Why did I overlook these before? Because I am working on subtlety in my studio, Kahn's early monocolors and minimalist works are an inspiration to me. I really love the ones where he just pushes one or two intense colors through a tonalist surface, such as the one titled Sunset, 1967.
By coincidence, the Jerald Melberg Gallery, in Charlotte, NC, just finished an exhibition of Wolf Kahn's early works, from the fifties and sixties. Here is a video series with a very informal interview of Kahn, and if you want to get a better look at some of the paintings, go to the website for the exhibition.
