One of Europe’s most celebrated living artists, Per Kirkeby (Danish, b. 1938), is a painter, sculptor, geologist, filmmaker, writer, and poet. The most comprehensive display of his work in the U.S. to date, the exhibition features 26 richly layered paintings and 11 striking bronze models. Kirkeby believes that art, like science, is constantly in flux; his works incorporate aspects of natural history, reflecting the artist’s considerable curiosity about the infinite variety of life.
