Dolores is proud to present a selection of new works by the Norwegian artist Olve Sande (Bergen, 1984). Before receiving his degree in Fine Arts at the National Academy of Art in Oslo in 2011, Sande studied architecture at the Oslo School of Architecture and Literature at the University of Oslo. This background is clearly present in Sande's works and his handling of materials.
Investigating the transformation of sculptural materials and processes into two-dimensional pieces could be considered as a leitmotiv in his recent work. Applying removal, deconstruction and assembly of the various ordinary building materials Sande examines their sculptural and formal possibilities, while the physicality of the work remains his focus. Even though this physicality retains a strong presence, it resists the beholder’s interpretation and confronts him with the absence of a singular reading.
Olve Sande (1984) lives and works in Oslo. He studied at the School of Architecture and the National Academy of Art, both in Oslo.
