Günter Tuzina, Duo: 23 April – 21 May 2016

Slewe Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition Duo by German artist Günter Tuzina. The exhibition will show new works by him, both paintings and drawings. The exhibition will open Saturday April 23 and will last until May 21. There will be a music performance by the artist in collaboration with musician John Snijders Saturday 23 April at 4 pm. It will take about 20 minutes.

The very refined drawings and paintings by Günter Tuzina show the inheritance of the minimalist idiom of the sixties and seventies. His rectangle sized drawings in mostly dark blue, red and green colors look like windows.
