Manifesto of the Collective:
 
“We are artists and activists who want to speak out the truth of our minds and bodies through
art. We are at war with Patriarchy and Capitalism. We resurrect the ugly, the fat, the
marginalised, the witches and revolutionaries to fight against what is imposed, the invisible
chains of our oppressor break with the nudity of our truth.

This moment belongs to us and we encourage you to see it also through our eyes.”

SOUNDCOLOURS

Paintings by Thomas bo Henriksson

18th September — 9th November 2022

Opening on the 18th of September 3 – 7 pm
Musical performance by Liron Yariv and Chatschatur Kanajan at 4 pm

artloft.berlin, Gerichtstrasse 23, 13347 Berlin

Artloft.berlin presents the third exhibition of Swedish artist Thomas bo Henriksson, whose works radiate with continuous honesty, drama and joy, optic heaviness and playful lightness, rhythmic systems and total coincidences. The new series of paintings continues the exploration of his previous show, Beyond Singularities. In that earlier exhibition, Henriksson introduced an inventive vocabulary of “colour chords,” where thick layers of oil paint create almost three-dimensional forms to expose the way the paintings live and evolve over time.
The new body of work presented in the current exhibition extends from the artist’s idea of colour chords to expose the rhythmic movement of his brush on the canvas and reveal a musical component inspired by the violin instrumentalist Chatschatur Kanajan.
Henriksson says, “Paintings become art when what you perceive is bigger than what your eyes can see. Good paintings open doors to new inner landscapes. When you let them flow through your imagination, you can encounter moments of eternity again and again.”
The element of time is suggested in part through the artist’s use of color. As the artist asserts, “To paint with a brush is like travelling through time.” The recent works contain color references to other paintings as a way to journey through the history of art. Henriksson believes that “Colours build bridges between the worlds, form their identities.”
