PETER RAVN - PAINTINGS

 

PAINTINGS / MALERIER

 

Galleri KANT shows new works by the painter Peter Ravn, who continues his exploration of the meeting between man, society, and nature. The exhibition is shown in both of the gallery's exhibition spaces and consists partly of works from this summer's exhibition "The Fall" at the Rudolph Tegners Museum, and a series of new oil paintings from recent months. The works from "The Fall" were created following an invitation from the museum to enter into a dialogue with the sculptor Rudolph Tegner (1873-1950). They constitute Ravn's answer to and corrective to Tegner's depictions of the ideal masculinity in eternal vitalistic upward striving and control. In the latest works, Ravn picks up the thread from his exhibition at KANT, The Free Movement in 2021. Here he transplants his men - Ravn's signature - into forest-like surroundings. With danger and redemption as inseparable core forces, Ravn has been inspired by the American author and advocate of civil disobedience Henry David Thoreau as well as by newer trends such as eco-poetry and, climate fiction.
