◄ Overview

Zak Kitnick

Season 7 (Aluminum board, Galvanize steel bar, Copper ace point, Brass point)

“There are some parts of life that are very complicated, and other parts that are very simple,” says Zak Kitnick. “I try to simplify the complicated parts and complicate the simple ones.” This perspective is reflected in his recent series of backgammon boards, which were featured at CLEARING gallery in 2018 in an exhibition called “Doubles.” The selection shown at Object & Thing could be read as alluding to the long tradition (in both Asia and Europe) of art themed according to life cycles and seasons. Kitnick’s palette of metals, however, has an elastic relationship to spring, summer, fall, and winter. Like the artist’s other deep dives into everyday motifs – olive oil, telephones, and Sears tools among them – his approach is loosely metaphorical, obliquely aestheticized, replete with gamesmanship. 

Regular price $15,000
