OUTSTANDING METAL

   OUTSTANDING METAL         Frederiksværk - Denmark     June 22 - October 30  201 "The sculpture "Windy Hill" (2002) was my first attempt at creating a large scale sculpture using welded steel. At the time I was          residing at a very secluded location in the hills east of Varberg , south of Gothenberg in the Halland area of Sweden. The concept of the this specific piece of sculpture was to implement distinctive landscape elements that I was using in my paintings. Prominent landscape features that are normally viewed as distinct horizontal planes have been re-constructed in a verti... [more]

"BENSONHURST" by Kevin Broadbery @ THE SOCIAL. Copenhagen

      The mark of a really good photographer is that you can look at an image without feeling any sense of the photographers presence. Kevin Broadbery has the enviable talent in being able to photograph people and the event without being an obtrusive influence. I have seen him do it. From my perspective to witness the initial intrusion is mildly embarrassing. He just enquires politely if he may? and they avail themselves to him. They strut and flaunt as if posing for the camera is an everyday event and they become the perfect partnership for a photographic autopsy that is all so fascinatin... [more]

METROPOLIS OR GRAVEYARD

LAUNCH ABOUT ARTICLES ARTS ICONS INTERVIEWS SCAPES TRENDS @ METROPOLIS OR GRAVEYARD by BIRGITTE KATBORG LAURSEN on APRIL 12, 2010 ·  in ARTS ‘Graveyard’ is the title of this gigantic sculpture by artist Galvin Harrison, which seems to continue endlessly, and makes you wonder what this insane repetition is all about? The title ‘Metropolis’ brings to mind Fritz Lang’s expressionist film from 1927, set in a futuristic urban dystopia, but also large contemporary cities like New York. Before entering too much into a discussion of the deeper meaning of ‘METROPOLIS OR GRAVEYARD’ I want to distinguish between b... [more]
