NEW YORK, NY.- Alexander Berggruen
announced their representation of Danny Fox, Hulda Guzmán, and Paul Kremer.
Danny Fox (b. 1986, St. Ives of Cornwall, England) blends domestic imagery with influences from his natural surroundings to create eerily striking articulations of the human psyche. Using photography as source material enables Fox to extract the lines, forms, and layers that comprise the simplest rendering of his subjects lives and spirits, and to synthesize them to their core essence.
Alexander Berggruen has shown Fox's paintings in a solo show Danny Fox: The Sweet and Burning Hills (January 12-February 26, 2021) and in the gallerys group shows Animal Kingdom (June 26-August 29, 2020) and Words (October 11-November 26, 2019).

Fox lives and works in St. Ives of Cornwall, England.
Hulda Guzmán (b. 1984, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic) employs her tropical surroundings to illustrate her exploration of perspective and reality. Guzmán renders a world in which children, adults, animals, plants, and invented creatures alike come together to dance, lounge, congregate, share secrets, and playall colored and enriched by embracing nature and celebrated through the act of painting.
Guzmán has held a solo show with the gallery Hulda Guzmán: my flora, my fauna (October 23-December 19, 2020) and been included in the gallery's group show Katherine Bradford, Hulda Guzmán, Rebecca Ness (December 11, 2019-January 29, 2020).

Paul Kremer (b. 1971, Chicago, IL) paints configurations that may imply architecture or images from nature with an exuberant eye for color and form. At the core of the artist's practice is a three-part journey: inspiration and conception, exploration via digital experimentation, and execution through manual articulation.
Kremer's work has been presented at Alexander Berggruen in a solo exhibition Paul Kremer: Layer Hooks (February 7-March 11, 2020) and a group exhibition show Shapes (April 21-May 27, 2021). His work was recently on view in a solo exhibition Windows at Louis Buhl, Detroit, MI

For twenty years, Kremer owned a graphic design studio, where he worked with such clients as Lou Reed, Tom Waits, PBS, and National Geographic.
