The rhythm and the beat come out through the patterns in the depicted motif. Whether it is the city, an interior, nature or a human being, it is always the movement that interests me the most, says Anders Moseholm
The book BEAT starts with a mesmerizing flow of the movement in urban scapes that is characteristic for Anders Moseholm and continues with his work of elaborate but disrupted and dissolved interiors. Finally the book presents his meditative paintings of nature locations, tense like a Bergman or Hitchcock film noir-set. The title BEAT expresses a constant tendency in Moseholm’s work, that of transforming the beat and mental influences of reality into an outgoing rhythm and beat in his paintings.
US art critic and poet Raphael Rubinstein and the Danish professor and artist Erik Steffensen contribute to the book with their intense texts about Moseholm’s work over the past 10 years.
The book will be released in connection to a gigantic solo exhibition of Moseholm’s work at the museum Kastrupgaardsamlingen in Copenhagen, opening October 9th. For those who want their copy signed by the artist, a book signing will take place at the Devin Borden Gallery in Houston/US on November 15th at the opening of the exhibition BLACKOUT.Share on facebook
