B Holm Andresen's newest collection of work 'Back to basic' represents a new re-engagement with the artist and the life of the artist
B Holm Andresen's newest collection of work "back to basics" represents a fresh re-engagement with the artist and the life of the artist. Six new paintings going to be on show in this exhibition of paintings painted in London during 2005.
These figurative paintings depict a cartoonish world of figures and settings reminiscent of Philip Guston's work from the late 60's to the present, combined with traces of Gerhard Richter's abstract work and the 80's "bad painting" movement.
B Holm Andresen's "figurative infantilism" goes "back to basics", absorbing the simplified language of contemporary mass media, and re-interpreting its simplistic messages in paint. Here we see that language used to describe the artist and the life of the artist stripped down to the core basics.
