Galerie Michael Janssen in Berlin opens group exhibition titled Unknown (Paintings)
BERLIN.- Galerie Michael Janssen announces Unknown (Paintings). On view are works by Emil Holmer, Anders Kjellesvik, Peter Linde Busk, Christof Mascher and Aaron Spangler. The works on view have a common notion of imaginary landscapes. They share the space of inner and outer worlds and reveal that something familiar can also be foreign. Autonomous narratives expose personal myths while at the same time something mysterious seems to be covered under the layers of paint. Distinct painterly gestures disclose uncertainty and convey something unresolved, conducting us simultaneously toward the inscrutable and the unexplainably familiar. Peter Linde Busk (*1973) constructs universes with manic, enthusiastic brush strokes that combine strong colors and awkward shapes and make reference to several traditions of painting. His personal performance and fear of failure also plays a central role in his work.
