In the works of Bjørlo (b. 1986), there is a focus on time, on the slowness of the process. By dwelling in front of the seemingly empty, white canvas, he breaks with painting tradition, habits and with his own ideas of the finished work. In this slow process, he reaches some kind of point zero, and is able to let go to chance, and the opportunities it brings him. It is a working method very similar to how the process of Francis Bacon has been described.
Bjørlo works in a span between controlling the uncontrollable process, and at the same time letting uncontrollable actions take him in new directions. There is always a curiosity towards investigating the abstract and more technically, to what paint can actually do.
Birk Bjørlo was born in 1986 in Hønefoss, Norway. He lives and works in Copenhagen, where he graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art in 2014.
Lanes of transparent neon colored mylar films, perforated grey nets, and neatly conducted paintbrush strokes, all assembled with the outmost precision in large collage paintings and installations. This is the universe of Ruth Campau, who for more than three decades, has been investigating and expanding the field of painting.
Despite the fact that Campau in her works uses synthetic elements and objects, unfamiliar within the painting tradition, one is never in doubt that her works are man made, full of fragility, and intuitiveness, and driven by the curiosity towards exploring new materials.
Ruth Campau was born in 1955, in Denmark. She lives and works in Copenhagen.
