Color Poses

The 2022/2023 season at La Fiambrera opens with Color Poses, Scandinavian artist Lasse Skarbøvik’s second exhibition at the gallery.

The twenty-five original works created in acrylic paint on canvas and paper for Color Poses are accompanied by a selection of numbered and signed serigraphs and giclée prints. The work is colour-tinted on this occasion. A move away from the monochrome nature that characterizes much of Skarbøvik’s previous work. Lasse’s style combines the notion of a figure or part thereof that takes on a recognisable but often ridiculous appearance that indicates how the artist can laugh at himself and the wider human condition in general. What at first might seem like being an attractive image will upon closer scrutiny make the viewer smile when recognising an episode of daily life such as misplacing one’s glasses or simply sporting a bad haircut.

While putting the finishing touches to the paintings for Color Poses, Lasse told us:

We see figures everywhere, they are direct and communicate to you in a basic and immediate way. Color Poses is a celebration of simplicity and diversity. I work with “idea-based” figures and forms that are abstract and close to primitive. The paintings are infused with a broader palette than I normally use, inspired by Scandinavian nature but also by the Spanish art tradition that uses uncomplicated shapes and colours.
