A collection of paintings made in 2020 by Tania Sloth.
The paintings represent a year that started with her quitting her job in Januray to focus on her art to the covid lockdown and feeling isolated in March and a blooming summer in July that inspired her to open Magenta gallery. The work has the expressions of both abstract form and narrative statements that creates a storytelling and commication with the viewer.
The eight paintings will be displayed from the gallery window and will change placement during the exhibition so you can see them all from the street.
The first exhibition at Magenta gallery marked the opening and celebrated the collaboration with neighbour shop Strengelegen.
It shows a unique collection of wood sculptures from Strengelegen’s Torben Carlsen and wood collages and paintings from the gallery’s Tania Sloth. The exhibition is a tribute to the shop and its history and transform the room from being filled with old instruments to an exhibition space.
The sculptures from Torben Carlsen are made from wood knots found in the forest of Italy. They have been cleaned, polished and some are placed on a foot with a brass stilk. The sculptures have very unique character-like faces that play with your imagination in an organic and abstract form.
The collection is based on organic shapes, material study and colour expressions from 2017-2020. The works are experimental studies of the wood as a canvas and component for the paintings. She uses wood and leather as building blocks to create textural collages.
Clouds form and the storm comes. It gives way to something new. This exhibition of art, both paintwork and multimedia is the creation of Kollektivet_AR7.
Kollektivet_AR7 is a new artist, who has worked for governments and multinationals – on everything from conflict reduction to communications. But then came pain, in its various guises. And from that pain: art. Stormation is the story of escape and realisation.
The paintings has playful style with a re-imagination of form in familiar and unfamiliar shapes. The lively and vibrant colours speak to the idea that more is more.
All the works are for sale in the gallery. See the price list
