Dutch born, Vancouver BC based minimalist sculptural artist Arno Kortschot, received A BFA in sculpting and spatial design from the ArtEz Academy for Visual Arts, CABK in 1990, Kortschot has exhibited his work across the Netherlands in solo and group exhibitions and is represented in art fairs in The Netherlands, Canada and the USA. He has been commissioned for a number of private and public art collections. Inspired by the history of geometric abstraction that can be found in the art and architecture of his native country, the clean line shapes of Kortschot’s sculptures are a reflection of both architectural elements and the rhythms and colors of Nature. His affection for minimalism creates a strong urge to fill spaces with objects that are stripped of all meaning to exist purely as a spatial concept. In some works, he has incorporated LED light to allow the form to glow with color from the inside out. In others, a slight tension exists where the sculptures almost touch. Shadow play is integral to the entire reading of wall mounted and free standing installations.
