The November artist
Tor SR Thidesen
Galleri Opdahl, Stavanger
A great choice made by Gallery Opdahl for the artist of the month - November. Since his addition to the graduation exhibition at Rogaland Art School some years ago, I have been enjoying his work. Strange machines, impossible sculptures, often made of garbage or leftovers. Or messages that may seem blunt or even primitive at first glance, but not at second.
Unfortunately the installation was unplugged, it would have been even more impressive seeing the canoe paddles paddle into the air, getting nowhere.
I am very pleased to see this artist being appreciated, and hope to see more work from him again and again.
