Not too sure how the blurry mountainous wintry backgrounds add anything to the new works of Jan Czerwinski apart from a weird floatiness and a strange sunset glow (... and maybe that's actually enough?), when he can do so much more technically brilliant and darker work like the example below from 2003, but I think we had enough art ranting from yours truly for today so instead I'll just recommend you his Cranial Mountains exhibition if you're in Zurich.

Over and out.
