Andrea Grützner, Erbgericht/Guesthouse @ Julie Saul Gallery

As popular as random abstract photographs are becoming, Grützner’s pictures are rather good. All the images appear to be either from a wonderful set in the artist’s studio or what I am guessing is a bohemian loft somewhere in Eastern Europe, filled with cracking painted wood in faded colors that may have made sense in the early 60’s. The vantage points are so convoluted that it is often hard to locate yourself as a viewer, and it starts to make me suspect that these may not be real places but spaces created to be photographed. Either way, Grützner injects an air of mystery into some compelling formal images and this keeps the formalness of the work from growing stale.
