Detective Casals: "You recognize the MO (Modus Operandi)?"
Vincent Hanna (Al Pacino): "MO ? Is that they're good..."

Inspireret af ovenstående citatet fra filmen HEAT inviterer vi indenfor til det, der efterhånden har udviklet sig til en tradition, nemlig sommerudstillingen der viser det bedste fra de inviterede Gallery Poulsen kunstnere. I kan godt glæde jer, for kunstnerne har igen præsteret en række mesterværker indenfor maleri, tegning og skulptur. Og ja, DE ER GODE!!!

Det er en særskilt fornøjelse og med stolthed, at vi med denne udstilling kan byde velkommen i familien til endnu en Gallery Poulsen kunstner fra New York, William Powhida. Powhida har senest deltaget i galleriets jubilæumsudstilling og har tidligere gæstet galleriet i dobbeltudstillingen ”Bellum Omnium Contra Omnes” i samarbejde med Jade Townsend. Powhida viser sin første soloudstilling i Gallery Poulsen i februar 2015.

William Powhida, født 1976, er tidligere kunstkritiker og hans værker er bygget op omkring lister, kort og diagrammer, der illustrerer magtstrukturen i den kunstverden, han selv er en del af. Værkerne er nærmest hysterisk tilbundsgående, og han har intet problem med at hænge store personligheder i kunstverdenen ’til tørre’ i hans værker. Powhidas CV er imponerende og hans soloudstillinger er anmeldt adskillige gange i The New York Times. Powhida bidrager til udstillingen med tre helt nye værker, hvilket ikke nødvendigvis er hyggelæsning!

Som galleriets eneste dansker hviler der et stort pres på Jacob Dahlstrups skuldre. Han lever dog til fulde op til den standard, som hans amerikanske kollegaer sætter i galleriet. En standard der får de fleste til at ryste på hånden. Jacob Dahlstrup leverer gang på gang blændende og forbløffende værker primært skabt med blyant på papir. Dahlstrups talent er intet mindre end imponerende, hvilket hans seneste udstillingsaktivitet er et synligt bevis på. Dahlstrup er i skrivende stund aktuel i udstillingen Tattoo på Brandts i Odense og blev for nyligt udnævnt til at være en af de ti vigtigste kunstnere på den danske kunstscene af tidskriftet The Culture Trip. Her er han i selskab med prominente navne som Jesper Just og Olafur Eliasson. Vi glæder os til hans soloudstilling i galleriet til januar 2015.

Jean-Pierre Roy, hvis soloudstilling her i galleriet som bekendt var en stor succes, har siden hjemkomsten til New York arbejdet på to store malerier, hvis motiver lægger sig i forlængelse af udstillingen ”The New Me is Already Old”. De besøgende, der ikke nåede at se hans mesterværker under soloen, får hermed chancen for at se to af de meget få værker, der kommer fra Roys atelier i New York.

Endnu en kunstner med få tilgængelige værker er Eric White. Derfor hører det til en absolut sjældenhed, at vi kan præsentere et helt nyt og stort værk fra hans hånd. White, der ligesom Roy arbejder med oliemaleri, er dybt inspireret af filmens verden og det parallelunivers, der skabes heri. White viser soloudstilling i galleriet, forår 2016.

Barnaby Whitfield, pastelmaleriets mester, viser som noget helt nyt sort/hvid værker. Resultatet er slående, skræmmende enkelt og endnu engang et bevis på et naturtalent, der overstiger det menneskeligt mulige. Derudover vises helt nye værker af Aaron Johnson skabt i den traditionelle 'reversed painting' stil, hvor vi kender ham bedst. Som noget nyt arbejder Alfred Steiner med olie og for at gøre øvelsen sværere er oliemaleriet udført på en tredimensionel laserskåret skulptur.

Vi glæder os til at lade tæppet gå, blænde op for HEAT og lade forestillingen begynde fredag den 13. juni kl.16!


Detective Casals: “You recognize the MO (Modus Operandi)?”
Vincent Hanna aka Al Pacino: “MO? Is that they're good...”


Inspired by the quote above from the movie HEAT we hereby invite you to the yearly tradition in Gallery Poulsen – The Summer Show presenting the best of this year's invited gallery artists. There is much to look forward to as the artists yet again have made masterpieces in painting, drawing and sculpture. And yes, they're good!

It is with a distinct pleasure and pride that we welcome William Powhida as the latest Gallery Poulsen artist from New York. We exhibited him in the anniversary exhibition in November and previously he exhibited with Jade Townsend in ”Bellum Omnium Contra Omnes”. Powhida will present his first solo show in the gallery in late February 2015.

William Powhida, born 1976, was previously an art critic in New York and his works are lists, maps and diagrams illustrating the power structures of the art world, that he himself is a part of. His artworks are meticulously crafted and he has no problem exposing the power structures of the art world. Powhida's CV is impressive and his solo exhibitions have been reviewed several times in The New York Times. Powhida will contribute with three new works for this show and it is not bedtime reading!

As the only Dane in the gallery, an immense pressure rests on Jacob Dahlstrup's shoulders. However, he easily matches the standard set by his American colleagues in the gallery. A standard that would make most artists shiver. Artwork after artwork, Jacob Dahlstrup dazzles and amazes with works mostly in graphite. Dahlstrup's talent is nothing less than impressive which his latest exhibition activity emphasizes. Dahlstrup is currently exhibiting in Tattoo at Brandts Art Museum in Odense and was mentioned by The Culture Trip as one out of the ten most important artists on the Danish art scene in the company of Jesper Just and Olafur Eliasson. We are looking forward to his first solo exhibition in the gallery in January 2015.

Jean-Pierre Roy whose solo exhibition was a great success in February has been working on two large paintings since his return to New York. The motives in these are in succession to his exhibition ”The New Me is Already Old”. The visitors who didn't have the chance to see his masterpieces in his exhibition, will here get the opportunity to see two of the rare artworks leaving Roy's studio in New York. Another artist with few available works is Eric White. It is a rare opportunity for us to present a new and large work from him. White, who as Roy works in oil, is inspired by the parallel universe of film. White will have his solo show in the gallery in the fall of 2015.

Barnaby Whitfield, The Master of Pastel, has now explored black and white portraits. The results are striking and once again proof that his natural talent is transcendent. Also new works by Aaron Johnson will be exhibited, created in the traditional 'reversed painting' style where he excels. Alfred Steiner has extended his body of work and contributes for the first time in Denmark with a new oil piece where he uses a three dimensional laser cut sculpture as his canvas.

We look forward to raise the curtain, and let us show you the HEAT on Friday the 13th of June at 4 p.m.
