German-born artist based in Birmingham, Ala., Jürgen Tarrasch explores the subtle tonalities and textures of fresco painting in his multi-layered, abstract compositions. Utilizing oils, pastel, watercolor—and fresco—Tarrasch reinterprets ancient practices in contemporary terms, exploiting the various formal and conceptual tensions that arise in the process.

Jürgen Tarrasch will be at JCSM on Thursday, November 10, 2011, 5 pm to speak about his work.
