CENTRAL/DOWNTOWN GALLERIES


Avran Fine Art

Avran Fine Art welcomes a new artist, László Taubert! An accomplished master in the mediums of bronze and marble, Taubert’s powerful and iconic sculptures are hauntingly epic in form. Hearkening to the idiom of archaic Greek statuary – particularly, to the Kouros and Kore (“youth” and “maiden”) figures of Apollo’s sanctuary at Delos which are stylistically infused with a neo-Egyptian influence – Taubert’s languid sculptures encompass the language of abstracted formalism while maintaining an element of stylized naturalism. Sublimely elegant and highly architectural, his work reveals a mastery of both the classical and modern idiom.
