Exhibition: July 12th-August 4th, 2013


In his most current body of work, Barth Quenzer finds comfort in an estranged aesthetic, a feeling that places the viewer in a space between the formal and the abstract. His paintings are thick and layered leaving plenty for the eye to discover. In these paintings, worlds collide with explosive color and texture. The recognizable themes in his work rely on playful studies and experimental painting processes using oils, acrylics, latex and found images. Never fully knowing what his end products will look like, Barth Quenzer pursues his canvas like a mad scientist, making careful observations and constantly calibrating his painting methods to keep his paintings spirited with an obsession for color.

Barth Quenzer says, “I love color, to the point that I am hungry for it. I want my paintings to have the same effect on people… to have them salivate for color.” 

Leon Gallery is pleased to announce the Opening Reception of Barth Quenzer’s newest works on Friday, July 12th 7-10pm. Through August 5th, Leon Gallery is proud and excited to display a selection of new paintings by Barth Quenzer, the Denver master painter of the great Guerilla Garden movement.
