JOSEFINE LYCHE 

STARGAZE

1: to gaze at stars

2: to gaze raptly or contemplatively

3: to daydream

In Lyches work we are met with a plethora of different expressions, but they do all have these defining characteristics that makes it a easily definable piece of Lyches: -they all contain biodegadable glitter.. 

Josefine Lyches Untitled Series is the foundation for this exhibition. A series that she has been working on since 2006 until present day. 

Anyone who has been in the presence of one of her Untitled Series works know that they are both mindbogglingly mesmerizing, beautiful and contemplative at the same time. Its tempting to see them as modern day Rothkos. Huge, expressive works, true, but they also do promote a kind of deep introspection in the viewer.  I think Tommy Olsson once called Josefine Lyches works Psychedellc Minimalism, and if he didn´, well then I guess I am now.

HERMAN MBAMBA

In Line With: a selection of drawings


In Mbambas colourful drawings we find that there is entwined in between all the colours, shapes and the lines, a discerning concern about the world we live in. 

Mbamba, maybe more known for his large paintings, is by o means a stranger to the medium of drawing. To the contrary: he is a master of his craft, as it always has been an integral part of who he is.

The a4 series of incredible 51 marker drawings all have intricate titles, often humorous, smart and insightful, taking the viewer even further in on Mbambas imagination and observations.

Through lines, colours and shapes he investigates the world surrounding him, and it is our priviledge to be able to take part of it.

SINDRE FOSS SKANCKE 
En gjennomgang av forskjellige innfallsvinkler til et høyere nivå av en symbiotisk eksistens med betong, tåke og jern, bunnløse hav og endeløse fjell.

 

A walkthrough of different angles for a higher level of symbiotic existence with concrete, mist, and iron, bottomless oceans and endless mountains...is an exhibition of grand scale from one artist. Sindre has worked on painting his piece for a week in the gallery, and together with his paintings, he literally bombards us with impressions in this exhibition. Rust, glass, toxic chemicals and steel, paint, glue and plastic...it all melts together into some kind of abstract and grotesque landscape.

«METAL GEAR GOETIA5000»


THE DRAWINGS ⚔️🔩⚙️💿

The show includes 3 drawings based on alchemical and masonic working tools, each mirroring the face of the viewer. The drawings are based on the principles of birth, life and death, combining chrome aesthetics, graffiti, occultism and the idea of new age narcissism and artificial life.

The large and shiny drawings hold the space almost entirely on their own. Silver marker has been used to paint a sigil on the wall, and mirrors are placed around the gallery space. 

A portrait of Kim Kardashian in aluminum foil, drawn using a lighter to soot the foil. The symbols are in abundance, speaking the eternal tale of life, death and rebirth..

"In the Wind of the mind arises the turbulence called I.
It breaks; down shower the barren thoughts.
All life is choked.
This desert is the Abyss wherein is the Universe. The Stars are but thistles in that waste.
Yet this desert is but one spot accursèd in a world of bliss.
Now and again Travellers cross the desert; they come from the Great Sea, and to the Great Sea they go.
As they go they spill water; one day they will irrigate the desert, till it flower.
See! Five footprints of a Camel!
V. V. V. V. V."
