Description/

Edition of 5. Made during lockdown, ‘Headrest’ uses the universal image of a pillow, carved from a block of lime wood, and evokes both a resting and comfort, with an escapist utopia. Christopher Kurtz’s pieces are born from a sculptural motivation, working intuitively to create poignant and poetic forms that respond to a personal narrative and powerful emotional response from the viewer. Kurtz was shortlisted for the Loewe Craft Prize 2018, received the prestigious Louis Comfort Tiffany Award in 2005, and in 2007 he received a New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Award (Lily Auchincloss fellow). He has exhibited as part of Against the Grain: Wood in Contemporary Art, Craft and Design at the Museum of Arts and Design, USA.


Christopher Kurtz

designer

Christopher Kurtz (b.1975) is best known for his extensive exploration in wood sculpture and furniture design. His works range from needle-like starburst constellations, as seen in his ambitious installations in the United Kingdom or at Design Miami/Basel; to employing medieval drapery carving as a source of inspiration in Linenfold Armoire as part of R&Co’s groundbreaking exhibition OBJECTS: USA 2020, where Kurtz is described by New York’s Museum of Arts and Design as “one of the most impactful contemporary artists working today.” Kurtz is represented by Sarah Myerscough Gallery in London and lives and works in New York’s Hudson Valley.
