Project room:

Master Of Hunt
new paintings.

The exhibition ends 1. November, 2008

Concurrently, in the gallery's project room, we present the exhibition Master of Hunt by Cuban artist Odey Curbelo Urquijo (b. 1976). Odey Curbelo Urquijo explores traditional painting and its narrative potential. By juxtaposing contrasts on the picture surface Odey Curbelo Urquijo exposes painting's illusory qualities, which have traditionally played a conspicuous part in western art history, and at the same time his own fascination and explicit love for this shine through.

The paintings in the exhibition are all sequences of a fictive story, in which fantastic events unfold and intertwine in interaction with the imagination of the viewer. Thus it is both about hunting and about being hunted by the paintings and the stories they tell.

Med venlig hilsen,
Christoffer Egelund
