Currently up now until March 7 is Kour Pour’s first solo exhibition, curated by Nicola Ricciardi, in Los Angeles at Depart Foundation. The show includes the artist’s coveted carpet paintings, as well as a wall installation consisting of golden powdered incense. Unlike previous versions of his carpet paintings, which used imagery appropriated from museum and auction catalogs, the artist has created original compositions and juxtaposed them in anachronistic and cross-cultural narratives. These pieces contain images of hunters and gatherers, religious icons and mystical creatures, merchants, lovers and warriors.
All paintings in the show are acrylic on canvas over panel, 96″ x 72”. Images/photographs by Jeff McLane.
