Art In America

Kueng Caputo

at Salon 94,
1 Freeman Alley

 

If the kids from Saved by the Bell ever decide to reboot the Max into a high-end artsy lounge, they might want to hire Sarah Kueng and Lovis Caputo to design the interior. The Swiss duo's latest collection, "Never Too Much," includes hand-painted leather bowls, stools, benches and starburst lights clustered on the gallery's walls. The end result of the pair's riotous yet meticulous painting techniques is functional sculptures with a touch of Pollock (the splattery enamel used on the stools and benches) and Frankenthaler (the washy, inky vegetable stains they chose for the bowls).
