Asger Dybvad Larsen on Sunday-s
Asger works mainly on the physicality of the painting and on the transformation of traditional paintings materials. His works are both painterly and highly tactile and are identified most clearly in their dialectical conversation with the medium’s traditions and its classical structure
“Lately I’ve had an interest in the studio as a kind of dialectical archive of incestuous material compression and how the studio – as something living – affects the idea of this “archive” when the entire structure is constantly in one fluid motion.
At the moment, one of my primary interests lies in the volume and especially the logic of incest of the various painting generations in between; understood as series of works in direct physical interaction with each other – and in a way also referential with parts of the history of art – and in the end – how this affects the evolutionary aspect of an artistic practice.
All of this takes place in a studio where the logic of survival of the fittest, is a question of who and how many “you’ve” been together with.”
