Gallery Poulsen is excited and thrilled to announce that for this year’s Amory Week, we will be participating in VOLTA NY 2018 with a sensational solo installation by Jean-Pierre Roy. Nine breathtaking oil paintings depicting Roy’s faceless titans carrying the massive weight of history as a burdensome yoke, will grace the walls of our booth on Pier 90.

Colorful inferno hit Art Herning!


Gallery Poulsen launched the new year with a recurring event that always gives us great pleasure to attend. For 21 years now, Art Herning has been an immensely significant focal point for galleries across the country to gather and show the latest trends of comtemporary art - and this year was no exception!

It was with same excitement as always that we once again headed towards the homeland in the heart of Jutland to present a series of truly outstanding figurative masterpieces in the town where the tale of Gallery Poulsen began.

We raided the art fair with sublime color spectra and crushingly sharp composition by some of our most substantial artists, both well-known masters, promising young artists as well as a few new names that we came across and handpicked directly from New York! We built a display of such international impact draped in current and ruthless messages, it could match any museum space worldwide.    

We are both humbled and appreciative of all the support we met locally from, among other TV2 and Herning Folkeblad, but especially having our booth be the center of encounters with both old friends of the gallery along with new acquaintances, as well as those of our devoted collectors who made the trip west to experience the latest artistic movement from New York.

After having such a wonderful and eventful weekend in Herning - we cannot wait to return in 2019!

Featured artists:
Adam Stennett (US), Angela Gram (US), Christian Rex van Minnen (US), Jean-Pierre Roy (US), John Jacobsmeyer (US), Mi Ju (KOR), Mu Pan (US), Nadia Plesner (DK), Nicola Verlato (IT), Rebecca Orcutt (US), Taylor Schultek (US) and William Powhida (US).

Upcoming show: "The Past is Alive" by Angela Gram

We are delighted to kick off the spring with an exuberant new solo show by the talented young artist, Angela Gram.

We first came across Gram and her surreal distorted imagery at the renowned art academy New York Academy of Art in the fall of 2016. Since then we have had the immense pleasure of kicking the door in and insisting that the world take a closer look at Angela Gram’s aesthetically scattered brutes and critters, exposing nature’s savagery in an unravelling Western context.  

Her solo show “The Past is Alive” will show thirteen vibrant and forceful paintings of fractured identities dispersed into irregular and surreal forms.

Last chance: Mu Pan - "Battles Without Honor and Humanity"

We are currently showing Mu Pan’s massive retrospective solo show "Battles Without Honor and Humanity", which has completely transformed the gallery into a gory battlefield of bloodshed between historical militants and animated commanders. Even the heroes have been equipped with Ku Klux Klan hoods, underlining the fact that there are no good guys here!

The show will run until Saturday February 17th, so do not hesitate to stop by the gallery and explore each and every astounding detail of the past 12 years of Mu Pan’s impressive body of work as he takes us through layers and layers of significant war tales and mind-blowing storytelling.
