"COMP. BLACK OPEN BOTTOM" CAST AND MILLED BRONZED

SØREN SEJR WAS BORN 1981. LIVES AND WORKS IN AARHUS AND COPENHAGEN. HE STUDIED AT AARHUS ART ACADEMY.


THE SØREN SEJR PAINTING 'COMP. BLACK OPEN BOTTOM' IS FROM HIS "FORMAL BLACK" SERIES PAINTINGS HE STARTED IN 2017. IN THESE PAINTINGS SEJR IS BREAKING THROUGH THE MONOTONE BLACK SURFACE BY LETTING A PART OF THE PAINTING STAND OPEN WITH ITS RAW CANVAS AND SCRIBBLED ABSTRACT LINES.
THE INCISTING BLACK TOP OF THE PAINTINGS SUGGESTS THAT ITS COVERING UP THE MORE INTUITIVE SCRIBBLING PARTS AND THEREFOR DOMINATING THE SURFACE. CONTROLLING THE NARRATIVE. IT'S A STRUGGLE BETWEEN LIGHT AND DARK, NIGHT OR DAY THAT IS THE CORNERSTONE OF THIS PAINTING BY SØREN SEJR.
