Liv Mette Larsen: Nightview

Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art is pleased to present Nightview, a solo exhibition of paintings by Liv Mette Larsen. Born in 1952 in Norway, Larsen now lives and works in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The exhibition consists of nineteen paintings, all done using egg tempera on linen. Selected works on paper by the artist will be on view in the gallery’s back room.

“Larsen has long preferred buildings, often variably industrial, as her subject matter. Factories, warehouses, water towers, and silos are among the structures in her customary wheelhouse, and she depicts them individually or paired (Vertical Night View IV, Small Night View XI), or at times in small groups (Night View VII, Night View XIII). Landscapes they are, skylines they are – but then again, not really. ‘Buildingscapes’ describes them better; ‘building portraits’ hits even closer to home. The artist’s structures appear to us as shapes and as sitters, as ‘formal’ casts of posing characters, as blocky individuals with personalities and moods. Like bottles for Morandi, Larsen’s buildings transcend their objectness to embody certain qualities not always granted to objects: simplicity and humility, honesty and sympathy, and wistful, whispery curiousness." - Paul D'Agostino

"Larsen’s counterpointed forms and cleverly poised asymmetries shift our eyes gently about. We sense distant horizons even though we don’t see them. Serenity reigns even as longer looking stirs latent mysteries into motion."

- Paul D'Agostino

A limited edition, full-color, catalogue has been produced for the exhibition featuring an essay by Paul D'Agostino. The catalgue is availble at the gallery.
