Artist in Focus: Abraham Kritzman
Contemporary Art London
From the Artist in Focus Series
Abraham Kritzman works from within a wide spectrum of sources, or better yet, origins. These starting points could be personal narratives or timeless human imagery but mostly derive from his walking voyages, which usually follow pilgrim routes. These journeys, which Kritzman took in Japan, Spain and Romania, are not religious voyages for a holy purpose but rather opportunities for encounters that are linked to history, image making and the things one finds on a voyage to somewhere. In terms of time and place, some origins derive from fleeting, intimate moments, as well as from the artist’s interpretations of more constant forms.
