Olaf Breuning Colors The Mountain

Jan 30, 2014 - Mar 08, 2014

Olaf Breuning uses the first tracks made by skiers as his influence to paint in bright vivid colors on the snowy mountainside in Gstaad, Switzerland. Elevation1049, Breuning’s new work, is a series of site-specific exhibitions set in the Alpines. Gambling with the unpredictable nature of nature, Breuning uses food coloring to paint on the mountainside, splashing the colors on to the snow, performing these snow drawings, and witnessing the evolution his art makes with the weather.
