Margrethe Aanestad: Light Breaking
Light Breaking Margrethe Aanestad Prosjektrom Normanns, Stavanger 17.-25.9.11 Abstract drawings + New exhibition space
There has been enough talk about galleries closing down lately. Instead, here are great news of a new exhibition space opening up in Stavanger. The artists with workshops in Normanns street at Storhaug now opened a project room / exhibition space in their premises. The opening was crowded with people eager to see the place.
One of the inhabitants, Margrethe Aanestad, had the honor of inaugurating the space. She put on display her colorful geometrical shapes, that seems simple at first sight. But at closer inspection the forms are made by myriads of tiny stripes drawn with a crayon. This makes an uneven touch to the seemingly even forms. I can sense the time and effort that is put down in these drawings.
