Häusler Contemporary is pleased to officially introduce Michael Venezia as artist of the gallery who provides a coherent addition to our program with his innovative approach. Michael Venezia is widely considered to have played a major role in the renewal of painting in the 1960s, notably the various seminal strands of Abstract Expressionism which he expanded and reinterpreted through a personal approach, investing it with new aspects of quality. His painterly experiments began with works that were created with a spray pistol and continue to be executed on long narrow wooden bars that blur the borders between picture and object. A first extensive presentation of the artist in our gallery will take place up from November 21, 2013 in Zurich.
