Hot Art: Californian Artist Alex Couwenberg at Jennifer Kostuik Gallery

"Janie Jones" by Alex Couwenberg

Less is more. That statement perfectly describes the minimalist work of Alex Couwenberg, whose visually arresting paintings strike a balance between emotion-evoking expressionism and hard-edged abstraction. The LA-based artist crafts unusual layered pieces with visible underpainting, using bold lines and graphic shapes that hark back to the mid-century modern school of design (“Janie Jones,” pictured). Jennifer Kostuik Gallery mounts the first exhibition of Couwenberg’s work in Canada (to May 13).—Kristina Urquhart
