AKI Gallery is delighted to present the inaugural solo exhibition of American artist Robert KUSHNER (b.1949) in Taiwan— "Flower / Robert KUSHNER." Flowers have power; people are enamored by their beauty and profound symbolism. Nourished by human culture, they bloom in myriad forms, heralding the arrival of spring, conveying sentiments, and imprinting the history of beauty. AKI Gallery invites viewers to immerse themselves in the romantic floral poetry of the artist, explore the deep bond between humanity and flowers, and savor the joy and happiness brought by the beauty of blossoms.

Robert KUSHNER is a prominent figure in the Pattern and Decoration movement, which emerged in the United States in the mid-1970s to early 1980s as a reaction against minimalism and conceptualism. In his compositions, various forms of collage disrupt the conventional perspective of foreground and background, encouraging viewers to imagine freely and break away from traditional ways of viewing. The juxtaposition of sentimental, abundant, and contradictory materials and patterns exudes a magnificent combination akin to abstract artworks, conveying genuine expressions that bring pleasure and solace to the viewer's heart.

Rather than deliberately depicting floral elements, Robert KUSHNER combines abstract motifs and decorative objects akin to poetry, allowing organic lines and colors to intertwine freely and precisely, chanting the beauty of flowers. He proficiently departs from the conventional idea of Western still-life paintings, employing his heightened sensitivity to color and mixed media to freely interpret his vision of flowers. The maze-like space is presented through multiple mediums, introducing colorful botanical patterns that emerge from the artwork, creating a subtle bas-relief effect that eloquently shapes the stories encapsulated within flower buds. These beautiful works guide viewers to appreciate the beauty of flowers from different perspectives.
