Kurt Kauper Is Now Represented by Miles McEnery
Miles McEnery Gallery in New York has added figurative painter Kurt Kauper to its roster. Kauper’s paintings depict celebrities, athletes, and politicians, only some of whom are real. These naturalistic portraits have an edge of unease to them, with his subjects’ genitalia sometimes left exposed and their gazes rendered cold and uninviting. Kauper, who was born in Indiana and now works in New York, has shown at the Whitney Museum, the Centre Pompidou, the Stedelijk Museum, and other institutions.
