THE GUNNAR S. GALLERY
GUNNAR S. GUNDERSEN
(1921 - 1983)
CURATOR: JAN KOKKIN
In the first room, one can find the early figurative sketches and drawings, landscape watercolours and a painting with a motif from Høyanger, where Gunnar S. grew up. The humour of the artist is expressed through a series where he features himself as a hen, his nickname in Høyanger.
In the following room, one can find examples of the abstract compositions of Gunnar S. from the early 1950s and towards the middle of the 1960s. This features Red Composition from 1954, which is probably a study for the artist's mural in Arne Korsmo's villa in Oslo.
In the last room, one can find a series of seriographies featuring the original style that the artist moved towards in the mid-1960s. A display shows sketches, perception studies, jewellery and a photo of Gunnar S. and his family.
Høyanger is part of a larger project spanning five years of work around the idea of a place.
Landscapes dominate his work. Both through studies of nature and in more abstract works that express the feeling of being in an unfamiliar place.
In the Gunnar S. Gallery Kjærås Dahl presents works related to the village of Høyanger, dreams he had when he slept at Siplo, and impressions he got at Dale, at Nova, hiking in the mountains or at the factory.
Kjærås Dahl exhibits his take on the village and a broad selection of his work from the rest of the five-year-long project. Thus, he can also show who he is. The exhibition shows paintings, drawings, woodcuts, silkscreen prints, monotypes, video and sound.
