Kristian Touborg’s predominantly figurative paintings are composed based upon a democratic use of technical reproduction and reconstruction.
Touborg looks beyond the creation of a strict main visual narrative in order to allow the equally sampled and original produced elements to maintain their autonomy within the frame.
In Touborg’s artistic practice the notion of a blank canvas as a starting point for a painting has been replaced by the use of a compilation of digitally printed fabrics and various industrially treated materials and cut up canvasses. Touborg’s works is artistic assessments of not only what is, but also what was as he referrers back in time to the painterly tradition of the impressionist as he simultaneously explores the potential in what might be.
