Erlend Grytbakk Wold works with painting and sculpture based in the legacy of the modernist tradition. Through an exploration of form and imagery, he questions the idea of the pure and perfect in modernist thought. In Grytbakk Wold’s paintings, simple geometric compositions fade into sight, and give a pale, melancholic and dystopian rebuttal to the gleaming white utopia of modernism. In the same way, his sculptures resemble furniture in size and shape, but appear as abstract and dysfunctional editions of design classics. This exhibition explores the borderline between painting, sculpture and furniture.
