About

Artistellar Gallery is proud to present  Reflect / ing  a group exhibition with works by Karolina Albricht, Johannes Holt Iversen and Florence Reekie. The idea behind this show is based on the ambiguity of sensory perceptions and the way these three artists use their creative practise to reflect on the surrounding presence of tangible and intangible elements of this world. With the main focus on touch and sight, this shows surveys the play of light, colour, space, material, and surface. In different styles and mediums Karolina Albricht, Johannes Holt Iversen, and Florence Reekie, bring us closer to their understanding. 

Johannes Holt Iversen tends to concentrate on the material in his work, considering the lineage of artistic creation and representation. He is investigating the duality between light, shadow, and reflection, resulting in reflective, iridescent sculptural artworks. Due to the nature of his object-based work, he is also trying to figure out the space and the viewer’s surroundings. The human figure has a vital role when engaging with the works. He draws on inspirations in various fields, whether it be historical elements, like the early depictions from the Lascaux caves, or other inspirations from sociology, psychology, scientific methodologies, and pop culture. Florence Reekie and her works in the show examine the intricacy of surfaces, fabric, and materiality. These are transmitted onto canvas as personal reflections. Stemming from the themes of expectation, subversion, and decadence, Florence finds herself in the middle of a quest to develop ideas around perception, iconography, and coding within compositions while experimenting with the materiality of paint.  Karolina Albricht sees painting as an opening, stretching beyond dimensionality and optical perception. Its process is driven by curiosity, a desire to see what is possible and what can be uncovered. Her work probes the reciprocity of colour, shape, line, and texture and their responsiveness to the painting’s edges. Attempts to generate an active space, a visual environment that can be perceived and responded to through one’s intellectual and physical faculties, through the sum of one’s senses. She is interested in the interrelation of the body, its movement, the space it occupies, and the transference of these relationships to the pictorial field. What she is searching for in painting is a dislocation – a glimpse of a possibility, the very edge of seeing and unseeing.
