Per Adolfsen

 

Per Adolfsen’s emotionally charged acrylic paintings seamlessly merge representational and abstract elements that activate the works with surprising “funhouse” effects of fear, foreboding and buoyancy.  The dream-like floating tableaux, replete with swirling figures and fragmented architectural forms, engage the viewer in a seductive world of fantasy and uncertainty that recalls classic Scandinavian angst.

The world is floating

Per Adolfsen

February 12 – March 13, 2010

532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel is pleased to present a solo show of works by Danish artist Per Adolfsen. Although the artist’s figurative abstractions may appear crude at first glance, closer examination reveals works vibrating with energy and pulse, creating an all-out assault on the viewer’s concept of reality. In the title work, The World is Floating, images emerge out of nothing and figures float away into a one point perspective which seems non-existent. The transience of these images reflects the mutability of the human condition and consequent feelings of anxiety and denial. Adolfsen reflects the conditionality of everyday life, in which myriad random events beyond our control, from the minute to the epic, intervene not only upon our senses or our definition of the real, but our individual fate as well. It is left up to the viewer as to whether these are the results of chaos or phenomenology.
