Anna Kunz Art

American, b. 1960
Anna Kunz is a Chicago-based artist whose work encompasses painting, sculpture and installation. Grounded in a rigorous generative process, Kunz collapses hierarchies between media and sensory experiences, often using painted and dyed fabrics that function like nets to capture and manipulate light and color to create immersive environments. Her work is a testament to the continued possibilities for painting to create a space of contemplation, unification and joy. Kunz has also collaborated with architects, musicians and dancers to create spaces for dance and theatrical productions, including Merce Cunningham Dance Company, The Performance Collective and Industry of the Ordinary. Anna Kunz has exhibited her work widely, including recent solo exhibitions at Alexander Berggruen Gallery, NYC; Galerie Urbane, Dallas; McCormick Gallery, Chicago; and the Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago. Her work is included in numerous public and private collections. Kunz has been awarded numerous artist residencies, including the Golden Family Foundation Residency, Edward Albee Foundation Residency, the Space Program at Marie Sharpe Walsh Foundation and the Roger Brown Artist Residency. Kunz earned a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from Northwestern University.

Echolocation Blue-Green
By Anna Kunz
Located in Bloomington, IL
"Echolocation Blue-Green" is a monotype that Anna Kunz created during her visit to Manneken Press in November 2022. The prints in this series were made using oil based inks and paint sticks and hand-printed on Arches Cover paper. Anna Kunz continues to draw inspiration from the ocean; its hypnotic, cyclical movement and sense of mystery, which she has referred to as, “the most abstract space in nature.” This group of works is titled after the principle referred to as Echolocation, used by marine mammals as an extension of sight, to steer space and identify objects. In these works the artist has played with the idea of exchanging the animal behavior of using echoing sound as a means to navigate and locate, with vibrational hues as a way to compose, lead the viewer’s eye into unfamiliar relationships, and to materialize the unknown. Focusing on the elements of simple geometric forms and color, she imbues her compositions with energy through a process of intuitive call and response, suggesting a way for the viewer to enter and navigate the compositional spaces. The saturated colors in Kunz’ vocabulary are both opaque and transparent, choreographed in porous fields of the paper, and lead to symphonic compositional structures. While working on the "Echolocation” prints at Manneken press, the studio was filled with the ambient music of Brian Eno which created another kind of sonic inspiration for the echoing forms and colors found in the works. "Echolocation Blue-Green" is a unique monotype, 22" x 20"; a bleed print (the image extends to the edges of the paper). The front, lower right margin carries the artist's initials and date in pencil; the title is on the back. The Manneken Press blindstamp is impressed into the lower left margin. The print is sold unframed. Framing recommendations: float mounted on museum board or floated within an 8-ply window mat, in a quality, contemporary gallery frame. Anna Kunz lives and works in Chicago. Her work is represented by Alexander Berggruen New York; Mc Cormick Gallery, Chicago; and Galleri Urbane in Dallas. Her upcoming exhibition entitled "The Tide" can be seen at Berggruen San Francisco in February and March 2023. Kunz has been awarded numerous artist residencies, including the Golden Family Foundation Residency, Edward Albee Foundation Residency, the Space Program at Marie Sharpe Walsh Foundation and the Roger Brown Artist...

Japanese Modernist Sculptor Woodblock (Woodcut) Monotype (Monoprint) Print
By Yasuhide Kobashi
Located in Surfside, FL
Yasuhide Kobashi (古橋 矢須秀 Kobashi Yasuhide, 1931–2003) was a Japanese woodblock print artist, painter, sculptor and stage designer. He was born in Kojima in Okayama Prefecture. His father was a ceramic clay artist and head of the Kyoto Industrial Craft Company. Kobashi learned printmaking from the sōsaku hanga (creative prints) master Unichi Hiratsuka (1895–1997). In 1955, Kobashi graduated from the Kyoto College of Crafts and Textiles, and in 1959, he moved to New York City. At first he was sponsored by Lincoln Kirstein of the New York City Ballet, who had visited his studio in Kyoto and commissioned a number of works from him. Elaine De Kooning, art critic and wife of influential Abstract Expressionist Willem De Kooning recommended Kobashi to the Allan Stone Gallery, He would continue to work with this gallery for more than 30 years. When Kobashi moved to New York in 1959, many American intellectuals and artists were eager to learn about Japan. Among the early influences to reach a wide cross section of American society was Suzuki Daisetsu's (1870-1966) Introduction to Zen Buddhism, published in English in 1949 with a preface by the noted psychologist Carl Jung. Nelson Rockefeller (governor of New York and later vice-president) was Kobashi's patron, and acquired one of the artist's sculptures for the New York State Executive Mansion in Albany. As a young man he was exposed to a wide range of arts, including sculpture, stage design, carpentry, stone cutting, ceramics, calligraphy, painting, and furniture design. Most notably, he studied woodblock printmaking under Hiratsuka Unichi (1895-1997), one of the leading innovators in the Creative Print (ssaku-hanga) movement that advocated total artistic control by a single artist over the entire printmaking process, in contrast to the traditional methods of ukiyo-e in which designer, carver, printer, and publisher all had a role in production. Kobashi is best known for his sosaku hanga woodblock prints and his sculptures intended to be rearranged, which he called "self-constructions". The Cleveland Museum of Art, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA New York City), the Neuberger Museum of Art (Purchase, New York), the Albright Knox, the Weisman Art Museum (University of Minnesota, Minneapolis), and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville are among the public collections holding work by Kobashi. Yasuhide Kobashi created some of his first prints in New York at the Pratt Graphic Art Center. He became a member of the Society of Independent Artists and exhibited regularly with them. He is included in the book JAPANESE SCULPTORS: Isamu Noguchi, Yayoi Kusama, Akio Takamori, Yoshimoto Nara...
