Igor Dremin: Norway - Russia. Pilgrimage of the artist 05/02/2018 automatic translate
The City of Stavanger (Kingdom of Norway), the Kjell Pahr-Iversen Foundation, the Russian Academy of Arts with the support of the Amare Gallery, SpareBank and Rogoland Country Council represent the anniversary exhibition of Kjell Par-Iversen "Norway-Russia. Pilgrimage of the artist. "
For the first time in Russia, more than 70 works of easel painting and graphics of the famous Norwegian abstractionist were shown.
Kjell Par-Iversen is the leading artist of his hometown of Stavanger and one of the most significant representatives of modern abstraction in Norway. He was educated in the Academies of Fine Arts of Norway, Denmark and Holland, adding to his work in the studios and art residencies of Paris and Amsterdam.
Kjell Par-Iversen refers to the second post-war generation of Norwegian artists who were influenced by the European avant-garde movement Cobra, the abstract painting of the New Paris School and the American line of abstract expressionism. Throughout sixty years of creative activity, he constantly turns to these trunk lines in the art of modernism of the mid-twentieth century. The international character of its development and the variety of ways and means of working with form, color and space, determined the content and context on the basis of which Kjell Par-Iversen created his own language, artistic style and technique.
