Erindringer fra sørvest
Galleri Gann, Sandnes
The untitled paintings of Lars Strand may seem monochrome from a distance, but the closer I get I discover they are all made of tiny stripes of different colors, hence the artist's definition "polychrome monochromes". The colors are in numerous layers and of different gloss. The art is there in the lines, but it is also in my senses, as the brain translates the visual impression of many colors into one, even color. I am fascinated by the thought that just any other person may have a quite different translation, but we will never be able to fully compare the results.
