Espen Kluge I’m Not Here
Artist, coder, and musician Espen’s oeuvre includes a series of haunting images of eerie objects and spectral like portraits. In this work there seems to be an interplay between those Freudian concepts of displacement and condensation, paired with a poetry of imagery that oscillates between message, symbolism, mystery, fear, and desire.
Encountering the portraiture of New Zealand artist Henrietta Harris is an unusual experience. At first, one notices a surface so finished and so perfectly stylish we seem to be immersed in a practice of cool restraint. And then, in act of rebellion and color, all of this is wonderful written over with a slash of color. In this painterly mark making there is erasure of identity, and yet, at the same time a strange kind of revelation.
