KRISTA ROSENKILDE, CHARLES HINMAN (US), NILS ERIK GJERDEVIK
31.01.2014 - 01.03.2014
The exhibition Shaped in Galleri Tom Christoffersen presents works that deal with space. The paintings by Krista Rosenkilde and American Charles Hinman are not square or rectangular, but break with tradition by being polygonal and three-dimensional. In combination with Nils Erik Gjerdevik’s ceramic sculpture the gallery space is activated. Hinman’s approach is minimal and Rosenkilde’s approach is dense - they work with optical illusion. For example, by allowing the objects coloured edges create a vibrant reflection on the wall or by involving eye-disturbing patterns in the work. Form, colour and texture are important, not least in Gjerdevik’s architectural sculpture, which glazed and polychrome surface continuously renews the sculpture's actual form. The exhibition consists predominantly of works by Krista Rosenkilde - a solo with guests of honour.
