Drawings to Lights by Michael Ahlefeldt

Drawings to Lights by Michael Ahlefeldt

Jun  23 – August 19th 2022

Painter and freehand artist with genuine artistic passion and dedication, Michael explores in this series of one-line drawings the power of his subconscious. What at a first glance seems to be abstract compositions, reveals happy, enthusiasm and dynamic scenes where several figures evolve and invite the viewer to join them. The artist is guided by the way he sees the world around him, letting all this positive energy being translated into paper.
Michael’s curiosity on new techniques and fascination with colors and forms lead him to find a way to make his drawings alive and as vibrant as the scenes they represent. Their transformation into light “tableaux” with intense colors allows us to penetrate the artist’s world and join him into the dance.

“Drawings to Lights” demonstrate the artist’s ability to, through curiosity, capture and translate into two very different mediums his own personal space. His technical mastery allows him to simplify the drawing to just show the essential which allows its transformation.

Time is an ocean that ends on the beach’  Bob Dylan

Water is poetry. Sometimes hard and sharp, other times soft and elegant. Werner wandered along the coasts of Europe. Sometimes it was rough, then calm or everything in between. Yet the washing water always touched its inseparable companion: the land.

A perpetual motion of attraction and withdrawal, a flirtatious waterline. Fascinated, he looks at the water and documents what it does to people. Beaches and shores that seem to offer people time, needed to come to themselves. He immortalizes their moments of reflections.

Reflections that create subdued emotions, bring cheerful relation to life or evoke melancholy memories.

I’M NOT HERE by LISE JOHANSSON

I'M NOT HERE by LISE JOHANSSON

April 1st -April 20, 2022

Online exhibition on ARTSY – https://www.artsy.net/partner/in-the-gallery

In The Gallery is delighted to present new series “I’m not here” by Lise Johansson.

“I’m not here” is a series of self-portraits photographed in an abandoned hospital. The project is a reflection on mental illness and about identity in a state of transition.

Being in a void between the old and the new, this rite of passage is a vulnerable place. The surroundings can become fluid and one may find themself now completely reset without status or identity. What was before and what will come after?
This transition between two states of being can incite both an aching and unease to return to what one once was but often are unable to return to again.

SELECTED WORKS by JACOB GILS

SELECTED WORKS by JACOB GILS

March 5 -April 30, 2022

We are happy to present a selection of works by Danish photographer Jacob GILS from his series Mouvement and Transfer.

Jacob Gils´ photographs, equally analogue and digital in origin, embody a strong awareness of perfect technique and composition. The artist´s significant almost impressionistic style of iconic structures and sights makes his photographic works stand out with their layered production technique. The used polarisation method and multiple exposures generate engaging photographic interpretations that are organic and sensuous to the eye. Fragmented, draped and distorted they demand the onlooker to not only look at them, but also to get closer and pay more attention to the details as they never reveal themselves at a distance.

Movement is a series which combines a strong aesthetical point of view with meticulous attention to technical detail. As the title indicates, the series is concerned with giving shape to temporal and spatial aspects inherent in all visual experience.

Transfer series are polaroids transferred onto watercolour paper. Through this technique a particularly atmospheric and dreamy mood arises. Upon closer inspection, however, the eye begins to decode that in these works there are real places depicted, all with their special characteristics. 

WINTER LIGHT 2021

WINTER LIGHT 2021

In The Gallery would like to invite you to the exhibition Winter Light 2021, highlighting the work of some of the artists of the gallery and invited artists.

The longing for light reflects the current time of year, but it also makes reference to the necessity of it in the photographic process. We are presenting both smaller format photographic work in combination with oil paintings, each with their intensity of color and vibrant surfaces andalso small scale sculptures in classical materials.

Lise Johansson recently won the prestigious international photo prize IPA under the category Fine Art Photographyand she previously became Photographer of the Year in the International Color Award, and the achievement is well constituted in her work with its subtle tones and refined use of color and light.
