Balancing Time Between Your Eyes shows a series of highly personal, intimate and emotional works that subtly exist in the blurred area between the analogue and the digital. In the tension field between sculpture and painting, Touborg creates evocative and sensuous works where painterly gestures, bright colours and specs of silvery reflections create a strong poetic presence, both tactile and coolly distanced.
In Balancing Time Between Your Eyes, Kristian Touborg’s alluring compositions; a careful mixture of figurative and abstracted extracts, set the scene for rhizomatic and interlinked, yet wholly autonomous works in which lively dialogues are established between repetition and variations in both colour and form. In these works, we encounter glimpses of memories and the feeling of time rushing through our minds while we are submerged in the blue light of our digital screens.
Although his paintings might appear to depict something ‘real’; for example, a familiar bedroom scene of two people equally lit up by the piercing blue light from a mac, as well as the evocative moon light, there are, in fact, no ‘originals’. Reproductions in various materials have been sewn together with canvas, leaving the viewer with a myriad of impressions.
