Saskia Neuman Gallery is pleased to introduce Kasper Nordenström's first solo exhibition at the gallery, Spegeldansen — Mirror Dance. The exhibition presents suit of work; painting and sculpture, where the elements of form and material create suspense and tension. The play between somber color and sleek shapes creates a presence, unearthing the work from a firm grip of stillness, where intention and identity are revealed simultaneously. Nordenström’s work expose feelings of shame, melancholy, and the inability to express oneself. A quiet storm. The impression of drama results in a dance, its finale uncertain, but always close by. The entirety of the exhibition gives way for the feeling of knocking on a door, pulling its handle and the scuffing at the floor –leading to a moment where something sealed, strained, and hidden will soon be released.

Kasper Nordenström was born in 1987 in Stockholm, where he lives and works. The visual expression the artist employs is stripped down, naked even. Purposefully and systematically, paint seems to have been scraped away, leaving raw canvases, where the traces of color tones defy a will to disappear, be swallowed whole. In fact, the paintings have been painted in their entirety on the back of the canvas. They’re juxtaposed to panels where the canvas gives the impression of having been torn away, ripped from purpose. They are undressed, unprotected. The work exposes an inner fragility and look towards a state of a before and an after.
