TO THE BEAT
- with Ib Geertsen gouaches from the Fifties

Opening: Friday 21 October 2016, 5-8pm
   Duration: 22 October – 12 November 2016   

The retrospective Ib Geertsen exhibition at GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst has set the tone for this exhibition. As a little insight to the shown great lifework of Geertsen, Galleri Tom Christoffersen is presenting a selction of his gouaches. Made in the 1950ies, they reveal this decade as the time when Geertsen finished his fundament of his artistic lifework. Though never displayed before, the gouaches are made when Geertsen’s concrete dynamic idiom is at its best. Exactly at this point he has found his rhythm of an ambiguous play between curved and straight lines. And just then he begins making use of standardised colourations and forms. He is at the transition between believing in the finished easel painting to dreaming about the serial art that can be disseminated for use in public decorations and functional design.

Works by four artists are shown to the beat of Geertsen’s detailed work with form and colour.  Bodil Nielsen tightens up the formalism even more, but works with an organic movement. Anna Sørensen works with circles and squares as an indirect reference to the circlesquare (also called the droplet). Underlining the colour blue as the most instrumental in Geertsens gouaches, Christian Skeel has in relation to his side occupation of cataloguing colours, reproduced 200 variations of blue. With another take on theory of colour, Ebbe Stub Wittrup uses the psychoanalyst Max Lüschers theory on certain compositions of colour cards portraying the inner life of a person. Wittrup has, in the series Eight Cards converted the different states of mind to digital color portraits consistent with the composition of Geertsens gouaches.
