Arno Kortschot, "Captured Red," 2013, Zinc, acrylic paint, panel, 17 x 34 x 16.5 inches.
Dutch born, Vancouver based minimalist sculptural artist Arno Kortschot, works since 1990 as a practicing artist producing 3-dimensional objects. Exhibiting his work across the Netherlands and Canada and has been commissioned for a number of private and public collections.
Kortschot searches for the connection of form and material in relation to the environment. Inspired by the history of geometric abstraction that can be found in both art and architecture of his native country, he started to make blocks that were meticulously placed or hung, thereby forcing the audience to take a strategic position to understand his or her place in relation to the space and to the object.
