Monochromes and abstract paintings
Arne Malmedal's monochromes are simultaneously at Kunstnerforbundet and Galleri Riis these days. What is there to say about monochromes? I might think about watching paint dry, but this is already dry. I end up looking for something in there, maybe a flaw, maybe some uneven layers. I am not able to settle with a plain, featureless surface of paint of one colour.
To break the tension is an abstract painting, or maybe it is a painting
of some mechanical detail. It feels like a relief. Here is something to
study and consider.
