Erlend Grytbakk Wold Bearing The Light III, 2019 Watercolor on paper 36 x 26 cm
Framed by the artist
About the artist Erlend Grytbakk Wolds paintings show the very moment where we don’t see clearly, the place between seeing and understanding, and ask us to think about what this experience entails. Painting with watercolor on unprimed linen, with red, yellow and blue - the primary colors that became emblematic for modernism and the Neoplasticism’s ideology for harmony and order - spray painted in innumerable alternate layers on the canvas. The method creates a surface that at first glance appears almost brownish, with lines and fields of foggy shadows. Inviting you to spend time in their company, colors and shapes emerge from or fading into the surface of the canvas.
