Peter Holm works with painting in an expanded field, where color and shape break the illusion of the frame and take the form of objects and spatial painting installations. The paintings are often based on geometric compositions, but coincidences and a spontaneous approach allow the painting to be an open process. The interest in common art shines through in several works, with a poetic, almost decorative expression. Most recently, PH has worked with a series of works / installations that combine wall painting with objects. These are works that draw the viewer into the room and into a bodily, sensual reading of space, color and painting.
Torgny Wilcke has worked with the painting as a function and further developed the relationship with materiality. In actually usable colored lath and metal plate racks, work has been done with the physical properties of materials, where the materials' own logic is a new path for the painting with possible new meanings and associations both in the work of art and the experience of the result. Work is being done to define a new function for painting, a reworking of the painting's materials, which does not reject tradition, but perhaps inverts it, turns it around and away from a simple pictorial resemblance towards a greater physical presence. It is painting that you have to walk around and experience in motion.
Gabriel Pereyra Born in Argentina, studied in New York, lived for many years in Barcelona - and now in Denmark. Gabriel uses a strict and minimal language of abstract geometry in a strong dialogue with architecture. The beauty of Geometric Art Abstraction is characterized by its focus on pure shapes, straight lines and primary colors. Through geometry, he finds a universal language capable of transferring feelings and concepts beyond figurative representations. Through the synergy between color, material and form, he invites us to explore and appreciate beauty at its best. It transports us to a world where complexity is simplified, and uncertainty is transformed into order. Through his works, he seeks to convey a message of serenity, balance and connection with the surroundings that surround him.
