Tropical Flesh, acrylic and ink on wood, 95 x 70 cm
Feber / Collective exhibition / Studio44 in Stockholm, Sweden
This painting "Tropical flesh" was part of a collective exhibition called "Feber" (fever) in Studio44 in Stockholm in 2021. Both organic and geometric shapes intertwine producing a floating, volcanic entity with the effects of embers and steam. It is a complex composition moving away from figuration and towards abstraction. I continue this research to situate my work at the exact border between figuration and abstraction in order to thwart the automatisms of our eye and our thought. The relationship to the image becomes blurry, porous, and the viewer has nothing left to trust.
