DARK AGES
Red Door pop-up show, July 12 – 13, 2019

Thorsgade 89, Nørrebro

Red Door is honored to welcome Kirsten Reynolds‘ show DARK AGES to Copenhagen, on the weekend of July 12-13, as a pop-up exhibition. Kirsten’s art is featured on the cover of our most recent publication of RED DOOR MAGAZINE, issue #20, THE FUTURE:
www.reddoormagazine.com

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Kirsten Reynolds is an English artist whose current work uses photography, painting, printmaking and sound / light installation to re-interpret classical themes relating to landscape, nature and the environment. Preferring to work off the beaten track, Reynolds chooses significant locations to make nocturnal light drawings that capture dynamic traces of the artist’s movements in response to each specific landscape.

Whilst this technique has been much used over the years in science and the arts, Reynolds has developed a unique approach and her background in music and sound art makes her intuitive physical response to the chosen location both compelling and powerful.

ABOUT THE EVENT:
DARK AGES is an exhibition that connects the latest creations by Reynolds to a previous exhibition under the same name exhibited in London.
The event will take place in Nørrebro and welcome drinks will be served. It’s free for all to come and join us, and there’ll be a bar accepting cash and mobilepay. If you’d like to learn more about the artist, please visit:

The Visitor

(El Visitante)
Red Door pop-up show, April 13, 2019

The Artist’s Studio – Colombia, 2018
Brushstrokes that charge, caress and impact. A galloping of shadows on red corners. Movements that touch us like fertile impulses of rain.
Manifestations of city and moss, spilling themselves with the vertigo of an artist’s desire, while a tango plays in the background. But that’s my interpretation.

What do you see in the art of Jose Osorio?

Stories sometimes interlace themselves through decades, all in the name of art. These passions, these visions, are the fruit of the cosmos that sustain us and lead us towards paths never imagined.
I know of a man whose work coils up and twirls like women’s figures, but still also feels like archives of the mind we only peek through.
He comes from the surrealist land of cloud-covered mountains and coffee that some of you only recall because of its ravaging and interminable social conflict, Colombia.
I, too, come from this land, but we know one another from a different reality.
You see, this man can tell you the stories of New York that the city itself now begins to forget; of the endless nights of winter in the squatted buildings of the Lower East Side. He can tell you of the camaraderie that consumed us all and filled our days with poetry, absinthe, tobacco and bohemia. Through decades of this existence, Jose Osorio dedicated himself to pouring his visions on the canvas. Charcoal, oil, watercolor and pastel as his main instruments.

This man will tell you he’s got nothing to teach you, because that’s not his purpose.

Instead, he will welcomingly show you the result of his efforts. The conversations with the canvas. The precise miscalculations and dances of lovers, as interpreted in his paintings.
I do not want to write much more about him, because art is not to be explained, but witnessed. Testified. Experienced. And so, my only way to truly share with you the admiration and delight that connects me to his work, as well as the comradeship that unites us through continents, is to invite him here, to Copenhagen…
and to invite you to be a part of this encounter
Shall we?
