N G Hammer - Labyrinth

Ole Lindboe

Published 2002'''

 

The Painter N.G. Hammer is a narrator, whose stories are constantly verging on the disturbing. His pictures are filled with surprising expressions, compassion, humanism and a morbid sense of humor.

It´s like looking into a dark mirror and suddenly seeing parts of yourself you may have repressed. The pictures are grotesque. But they all tell the same story about human existence. And in this way, N.G. Hammer enters a tradition reaching far back in history and far into the future.

Monica Fagan

Vincent Bouton

Published 2003

 

Monica Fagan is of Anglo-Irish origin. She was born in Yorkshire and came to France at the age of 18 to study Fine Art in Rennes.

She paints a world of contrasts and contradictions, virginity and fecundity, symbolism and sensuality. To enter this world we must leave our masks on the waterside and take the keys she offers – invitations to penetrate and seek what she has jealously concealed. But we are not alone. The painting is inhabited. Shapes and objects become human. Musical instruments, rocks, stones and trees become female figures. She describes the transition of matter through water and over chequerboards, symbol of light and dark … duality and ambiguity … through shade

This catalogue show a variety of Monicas poetic paintings.
