About

Asger Dybvad Larsen’s conceptual paintings are identified most clearly in their dialectical conversation with the medium's traditions and its classic structure. This is done with a substantial focus on the traditional paintings materials. He sands the painting so that the stretcher bar appears as part of the piece. This particular process focuses on the physicality of the painting and stores the process in the surface of the art work - one of the medium's strengths. Asger Dybvad Larsen also works with surfaces in his paint-tray paintings. An acrylic paint-cast of the tray’s structural surface is mounted on a canvas and acts as an abstract motif in the work, and refers back to the precursors and the basic materials of a traditional painting. The same theme can also be seen in his stirring-stick frames, or when he shows simultaneously both the front and back of a canvas. The subject of Asger Dybvad Larsen's work is an ongoing investigation and challenging the dialogue of traditional understanding of painting.
