Clare Woods, Jinx, oil on aluminium

Clare Woods (UK)

Clare Woods uses oil on aluminium to manipulate qualities of flatness and three-dimensionality; twisting foreground and background to create nuanced and surreal imagery that connects the viewer to subconscious states of mind. Her paintings are essentially concerned with sculpting an image in paint and expressing the strangeness of an object.

Clare Woods (b.1972) is a British contemporary artist. Her recent solo exhibitions include Dundee Contemporary Arts, UK; Mead Gallery, Warwick Arts Center, UK; Hestercombe Gallery, UK; Pallant House, UK. Her works are included in Albright-Knox Art Gallery, NY; Arken Museum of Modern Art, DK; the Arts Council Collection, UK; the Government Art Collection

Trine Søndergaard (DK)

Trine Søndergaard creates works that connect stories across and beyond time periods. Søndergaard’s work is marked by a precision and a sensibility that co-exists with an investigation of the medium of photography, its boundaries and what constitutes an image. Layered with meaning and quiet emotion, her works are made distinct by their visual intensification of our baseline perception of reality.

Trine Søndergaard (b. 1972) lives and works in Copenhagen. Søndergaard has been a recipient of the prestigious Albert Renger Patzsch Award and her work is included in major collections such as Hasselblad Foundation (SE) and The J.Paul Getty Museum (US). Recent solos exhibitions include: Gl. Holtegaard (DK) and Gothenburg Art Museum (SE). A comprehensive retrospective presentation of Søndergaard's work to-date will open this fall at The Royal Danish Library (DK).

Kasper Eistrup (DK)

The artistic voice of Kasper Eistrup (b. 1973) has been shaped by the collision of several elements, in part by images within images collectively creating a new and expanded narrative. He himself calls it ”fragmentarism”, the technical implication being the utilization of drawing, painting and installation, frequently in the same piece.

Kasper Eistrup was born in 1973 in Copenhagen, Denmark, where he lives and works today. He began his creative career in the 1990’s as the lead singer and founding member of the Danish rock band Kashmir. In parallel with his musical profession, Kasper Eistrup – who is self-taught and has been drawing and painting throughout his life – has over time been working more professionally within the visual arts, exhibiting as a painter since 1999.

Kristian Dahlgaard (DK)

The sculptor Kristian Dahlgaard works extensively with the sculpture's weight and the absence of mass. His work consists of uniform sculptures based on one form put together in layers and different forms again and again. Through the consistent replica of a form, the artist reaches a reflective grace similar to running water or a flames movement and sound in a fire.

Kristian Dahlgaard (b. 1958) was born in Sønderborg, and grew up in Humlebæk. He studied between 1977-1983 at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He is a member of the Kunstnersamfundet and he is represented in the Weilbachs Kunstnerleksikon. Kristian Dahlgaard has been solo exhibiting in venues such as Museumsbygningen, Århus Kunstmuseum, Galerie MøllerWitt, Galerie Pilou, Galleri Spectra, and many more.
