Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy of Dinosaur Designs journeyed to this year’s Design Miami for Vogue Living to report on the global design forum which has become one of the world’s most significant stages.

Christopher Kurtz

There’s no other way to describe these pieces other than exquisitely beautiful. Each sculpture is hand carved from maple, oak or cedar and then painted black. We often talk of pieces having a sense of movement, but these pieces seem to dance as their rhythmic qualities are so pronounced in their linear forms. Paul Klee summed it up best when he said it’s like ‘taking a line for a walk’. Exhibiting as part of Tomlinson Kong Artware Editions at ‘Pulse Miami’ (the contemporary art fair) Kurtz was influenced by his father’s work as a calligrapher and this can also be seen in the shape and forms of his work. There was an elegant abstract quality in each of these pieces which was so precise that they seemed to extend in to infinity.
