About the exhibition:
Carsten Frank has exhibited in gallery NB since 1996, and therefore he has a large number of exhibitions behind him.
It has allowed us to experience how he has always worked with the renewal in his expression.
Back to Nature shows another new page by Carsten Frank.
On several levels, we are witnessing a look back. Carsten Frank has always interpreted nature, but this time we see a more gentle and different loose poetry.
Carsten Frank says of his works: "It is so latent in me that even in my more violent and expressive paintings, I try to find the quiet poetry. Nature is now the only credible ally we as humans have left. In a world marked of acceleration and alienation, we increasingly need the break and the natural, and that is one of the prime goals of my art.
After many years, I have again found the joy of the Spanish countryside, which has also been my vision and surroundings for more than 30 years. The 30 years of experience, of course, have brought my art and expression to new places, and now I have felt that with good conscience, and far more certainty, I can allow myself to interpret the Andalusian landscape. It is not a straightforward task. Culture needs to be inherited and it is a slow process ”.
The expression has become softer and the mood more Spanish. The works have become more poetic and can reasonably inspire others to write poems for the paintings. Not least because the paintings contain more than reproductions of nature; they are also filled with fragments and abstractions.
Two years ago, Carsten visited Frank Island and Canada, bringing home insistent memories and sketches that have since - and still are - becoming new works.
Raw nature with the sea, rocks, mountains and slopes influenced the artist to work positively on the impressions. The Nordic images are composed differently, and the color position is naturally heavier and more contrasting.
It is the gallery's wish and great hope that many will choose the opportunity to experience this new exhibition.
