Betalt indhold


Thorbjørn Bechmann presents in this exhibition “Flotsam and Jetsam” paintings on paper and canvas, that are the flotsam and jetsam of his studio in recent years. Works that all transgress systemic order to celebrate a triumph of sensuality and intuition.

What is being presented by Bechmann is transgressing language. It is a becoming in front of the viewer: abstract paintings that on one hand reference mental landscapes, but are at the same time without any composition elements. There are no horizons, background or foreground, and no elements of perspective. They are a becoming rather than a being. They are constructed by the viewer while delving into the layers of paint on the canvas.

Thorbjørn Bechmann’s works offer a space for multi-faceted meditation over meaning and matter.
One could mistake the works for only a space for contemplation and a surface to explore. But more specifically there is a tension between (non)representation and self-reference operating. Therefore, the usual tools for understanding do not apply to this painterly strategy. What we see avoids any interpretability, any single decipherment or translation into spoken words. Bechmann’s paintings are easy to delve into, but remain riddles without solutions.
