Utställning: Magnhild Opdøl
Opdøls’ works are often based on photographs and found objects, she examines how the feeling of reality is conveyed through other media such as film and literature, and processes the photographs according to basic compositional principles. The photographs are then often used to create pencil drawings, often leaving only the main motif on a white surface. The pictorial approach is realistic, but the motif is presented without an eye for a realistic reproduction of the object. Primarily looking to evoke a feeling, the object-composition is a vehicle. The sculptural works go through a similar process, and Opdøl often adds or changes the material to create new associations to the objects.
