ROAR KJÆRNSTAD

 

 

This is a combination of abstract expression and figurative forms. The goal is to make abstract and recognizable shapes coexist in a self-contained universe. This universe can not be described as surreal, but more like a fragmented and volatile reality. This is not only evident of textures, but also in the general composition and the dissolution of traditional perspectives. Sort of a reflection of the contemporary society. In general Roars pictures function as snapshots. "My intention is to make a concrete, narrative elements merge with abstract shapes. I use other elements that necessarily don`t fit very well into this context. In other words, I try to create a dissonance".
