Jazz Blues I

CHF 4'500

"Jazz Blues I" was part of the exhibition “Chryssa: Eccentric Abstraction” at Blue Velvet Projects in 2022, Chryssa's first solo exhibition in Switzerland. The show brought together some of Chryssa’s revolutionary sculptures, paintings, and works on paper, of which "Jazz Blues I" is a unique example.

About the Artist

Chryssa (b. 1933) was a Greek-American artist who made pioneering work in New York from the 1950s onward. Using different media such as drawings, lights, optics, and found objects, Chryssa re-defined the viewer’s relationship with space and time. As a woman artist Chryssa challenged the patriarchal culture of that time, by embracing the more complicated emotions that arise within the vocabulary of freedom. She died in 2013.
