Galleri Brandstrup is pleased to announce the opening of our next exhibition “Rethinking Media” with artists Paola Angelini (Italy), Amalie Jakobsen (Denmark) and Øyvind Sørfjordmo (Norway).
Paola Angelini (1983) was born in San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy, where she still works and lives. Her work is centered around the study of painting by exploring the possibilities of the language within the practice of painting, as well as using it as a tool of research. She gathers inspiration from found and personal images, or historic art works, where her interest lays on the subject within the image and its composition which becomes both the birth and the core of each of her own works. While the study of the image is where she draws her initial vision, it is the research of the visual language within images which is her objective on her path of exploring the medium of painting.
Danish artist Amalie Jakobsen (1989) currently lives and work between Berlin, DE and Mexico City, MX. Through her work she investigates the interrelationship of colour, form, shape, and time, to understand how these elements alter human patterns and perception. With her precise, geometrical-shaped sculptures in bright, and often, primary colours, she references the minimalist tradition established by artists such as Richard Serra, Robert Morris and Frank Stella, and investigates how the viewer relates to one’s physicality and one’s surroundings, thereby pushing the dialogue to new dimensions.
Øyvind Sørfjordmo (1987) graduated from his masters at Kunstakademiet in Oslo in 2018. Sørfjordmo's abstract works of drawings, paintings and sculptures seek to communicate with one another across their different media, with the joint goal of exploring the limitations within the materials used, and their visual effect of attraction or repulsion on their viewer. His artistic process starts with research in the form of sketches he develops of shapes and visual expressions he pursues to study. The artist then proceeds to convey his research on to a canvas, or in the form of a sculpture, or more often than not, a combination of media that are to be seen in connection with one another.
