Jeff Krueger: Details From The Swan’s Garden

March 31, 5:00 pm7:00 pm

Contemporary art gallery Kouri + Corrao is excited to announce Jeff Krueger’s upcoming solo show, Details From The Swan’s Garden, opening March 31, 2023 from 5 to 7 PM. Krueger’s show will be on view at Kouri + Corrao located at 3213 Calle Marie, Santa Fe, NM 87507 through May 6, 2023.

“My drawings and sculptures lay out the groundwork for thinking through preverbal cognizance,” says Krueger. “There is a conflict in the work between our bodies in the world and the fantasies in the mind, which is possibly unresolvable, yet inescapable. Seeing ourselves as we are, becoming one with each other has never been easy, and is nothing without humor and pathos – it is our only garden.”

Krueger’s show consists of 18 ink on paper abstract line drawings and four biomorphic ceramic sculptures. The collection on display spans Krueger’s extensive career in the arts.

“We’re incredibly thrilled to be highlighting both Jeff’s older and more recent work,” says managing partner Justin Kouri. “The thread that connects the works over the past two decades is apparent and necessary to see where his work started and why it’s endlessly captivating now.”

Albuquerque-based artist Jeff Krueger is an abstract social realist considering the signs and shifting codes of modernity. Occasionally taking on an ethereal nature, his works in ceramics are minimalist studies in shape and form while providing biomorphic qualities.

Krueger studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts (BFA in Ceramics in 1986), the University of New Mexico (MFA in Sculpture in 1992), and The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture(1991).

He is a nationally exhibited artist, with exhibitions at such venues as the Drawing Center in New York City, Body Builders and Sportsmen in Chicago, the Brewery Project in Los Angeles, the Museums of Art in Albuquerque and Juarez, Mexico. He has won numerous awards including an Arts Midwest National Endowment for the Arts Award and a Chicago Community Action Grant. He has taught or lectured in many well-regarded art institutions and universities; most notably the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Royal Colleges of Art in London as well as in Copenhagen, and the University of California in Santa Barbara.
