Oliemaleriet er en opfindelse fra 1400-tallet. Videokunsten blev født i 1960’erne. Men at udtrykke sig kunstnerisk på papir er en flere tusinde år gammel tradition. Når en kunstner arbejder på papir, er den kreative proces ofte direkte og umiddelbar. Det er derfor en afslørende metode, der hårdt og kontant viser, hvad kunstneren formår at skabe med sin hånd og et stykke papir lige hér og nu.

Gallery Poulsens nye udstilling tjekker håndelaget hos en gruppe newyorker-kunstnere. De er alle bedst kendt som malere, der udtrykker sig med farver på lærreder, men de benytter sig også flittigt af papirets rige muligheder. Vi er stolte af at kunne præsentere kunst på papir skabt af disse prominente navne: Michael Bevilacqua,? Daniel Davidson, ?Aaron Johnson,? Mi Ju,? Erik Parker,? William Powhida,? Tom Sanford,? Alfred Steiner,? Jade Townsend, Eric White og Michael Anderson.?

Kunstnerne er ikke til stede i Kødbyen, men stiller gerne op til interview på Skype.

Gallery Poulsen satser på New York
Udstillingen markerer desuden, at Gallery Poulsen har forstærket sin appetit for The Big Apple og reserveret hovedparten af 2012-udstillingsprogrammet til kunstnere fra New York. USA er måske ikke længere verdens eneste stormagt, men for Gallery Poulsen er New York stadig klodens mest pulserende og kreative by.

 


Oil painting is an invention from the 14th century. Video art was born in the 1960’s, but to express artistically on paper is a several thousand-year-old tradition. When working with paper as a medium the artistic creative process is often direct and immediate. It is a revealing method that shows what the artist is capable of creating with his hand and a piece of paper - right here, right now.

This new exhibition at Gallery Poulsen examines the skills within a group of New York artists. They are all known as painters who express themselves with color on canvas, but frequently they also explore the wide possibilities of the paper. Gallery Poulsen is very proud to present great works on paper produced by these prominent names: Michael Bevilacqua, Daniel Davidson,?Aaron Johnson,?Mi Ju,?Erik Parker,?William Powhida,?Tom Sanford,?Alfred Steiner,?Jade Townsend, Eric White and Michael Anderson.?

The artists will not be present in Copenhagen during the exhibition, but will be happy to do interviews through Skype.

Gallery Poulsen and New York.
