Watchlist Artist: Paul Fägerskiöld

Galerie Nordenhake is pleased to present  S il e n t S p r i n g , Paul Fägerskiöld’s first solo exhibition in  Germany.

Fägerskiöld’s practice finds its roots in the exploration of painting as language. His work has looked at painting and its communicative aspects from various points of view, considering it through subjects such as cognition and Colour Theory as well as from a semiotic position, exploring its potential for creating meaning through symbols and motifs as building blocks for communication. Similarly, his practice holds an interest in the connotations generated by means of the use and materiality of colour and the construction of meaning occurring in the act of perception. 

Fägerskiöld’s most recent work on view in the exhibition consists of grainy monochromatic canvases. Made with acrylic paint from aerosol cans using a dripping and spitting technique the resulting images are floating colour fields, dispersing towards their edges and eschewing clearly defined borders.
