Freeway Eyewear

In memory of Craig Kauffman, 1932-2010

Craig Kauffman’s art is part of the fabric of the culture of Southern California. Resourcing the industrial materials that became ubiquitous via the growing surf and car cultures of LA in the fifties and sixties, Kauffman, ever the California renegade, employed auto-paint and fiberglass as the oil and canvas of his most iconic works: lozenge-shaped wall reliefs around which the idea of a west-coast minimal art movement called “Finish Fetish” crystalized.  Freeway Eyewear is indebted to Kauffman’s amazing contributions and enamored by his brilliant forms. Craig Kauffman in the LA Times here
