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.
