As the first solo exhibition in the gallery NB the visual artist Nana Rosenørn Holland Bastrup (b. 1987) exhibits a number of new paintings with the common title Polykrome Disguises.
Two times before, Nana Rosenørn Holland Bastrup has exhibited in NBeX project, which is gallery NB's project room for new up-coming talents. Her first solo exhibition in gallery NB is therefore a recognition of her talent and a great artistic potential.
Nana Rosenørn Holland Bastrup is educated in Germany at the Hochschule für bildende Kunste in Hamburg. Then she moved to Berlin, where she continued the development of her personal expression, which materially involves photographing her crafted space transferred to sailcloth and worked as a painting. The complex process allows the necessary spaces for Nana Rosenørn Holland Bastrup to create the stories that are important to her to pass on to the audience.
Art writer and critic Trine Ross writes in the new book entitled Polykrome Forklædninger, among other things: Bastrup does not go away to incorporate references, neither to everyday life, art history nor her own works. For her, everything new is created based on something that already existed in the world.
