A collection of paintings made in 2020 by Tania Sloth.
The paintings represent a year that started with quitting her job in January to focus on her art. Then came the covid lockdown in March and a blooming summer in July that inspired her to open Magenta gallery.
The work has both expressions in abstract form and narrative statements that creates a storytelling and commication with the viewer.
The eight paintings was displayed from the gallery window and changed placement during the exhibition to get a view 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.
