Søren Sejr (b. 1981)

Untitled, 2021. Signed and dated on the reverse. Mixed media on canvas. 83×63 cm.

Søren Sejr is known for his poetic paintings that are either abstract or with few figurative elements placed in abstract surroundings. The subtle nuance and texture difference between the image surface's two media - oil and acrylic - means that the works reveal themselves at a slow pace, which contributes to an almost meditative experience. In many of the paintings, however, the large surfaces of color are broken up by print on a background of raw canvas. This helps to give an expressive and gesturing dimension to the works as well as a feeling that the otherwise flat expression is made up of a number of material-bound layers or levels. This creates a both calm and overwhelming; soothing and intrusive, expressions at one and the same time.
