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.”
