Jørund Aase Falkenberg

21 Aug

*While not technically MCM, I just had to share these not-paintings by Jørund Aase Falkenberg.  They remind me of another modern abstract favorite of mine, Jackson Pollock, turned inside out.  Also, I just really dig that the woman in the first image is wearing what looks to be a Marimekko coat.  Love.

The work of Jørund Aase Falkenberg seems to me to consistently be asking questions. You know how some art tells you things? Well, his work asks you things. It asks you to think about the construction, the materials, and to interact. This particular series, Untitled (WP) looks like there were paintings on these walls at one time and one begins to wonder what is the art? The painting that is no longer there, or the paint that remains.

    I’ve often saved the drop cloths of art projects, thinking that I could use them and make them the centerpiece of a different piece. I really wish I could let go enough to paint with such freedom. They are beautiful.

    The artwork is fabulous. So is the delicious Marimekko coat!
