”It is with great pleasure that we present the exhibition Occupied With Imaginations. It is an exhibition about painting, its various expressions and forms, but also about the artistic process. The title of the exhibition is based on the experience of being totally engaged and absorbed by the work of producing art. It is a state of mind where the ego is suppressed or just exists in relation to the eye and the hand.
Painterly expressions are almost inexhaustible and are constantly changing. They engage with each other, influence and contradict each other. In the exhibition there is an interaction between figurative, conceptual and abstract representations, as well as meticulous, precise and free flowing expression. But what on the surface may appear as an unmanageable amount of painterly strategies, is in fact a matter of choices and consequences.
The artists in this exhibition are rooted in the depths of their own personal concentration and follow their own path in order to make sensible decisions. It is the ability to hang on to a personal process that gives each artist and each work its particular expression and strength.”
