Carbon 12

Private Gallery
"The Artist in the Machine"

Carbon 12 is one of Dubaiís most consistently interesting galleries. Despite a recent setback Ė it recently had to relocate to Al Quoz from a lonely exile in Marina View Towers Ė itís back with another spiky and engaging show, Pilot Plant Indicated, this time from the Norwegian painter Tor-Magnus Lundeby. He had a piece in Carbon 12ís opening exhibition last year, which gives a fair introduction to his MO. Think insectile and mechanical forms picked out in fuzzy-felt colours against a wash of radioactive sludge. It sounds ghastly but in practice often achieves a tone of naivety and calm that can be rather inviting. Lundebyís canvases might be alien circuit diagrams, or space stations, or deep-sea creatures. Stare at one for a minute or two and youíll probably find yourself daydreaming happily about the coming of our robot overlords. Well, you might as well make peace with the idea somehow.
