LARS KORSE

Emerging Visions
December 29 – January 14, 2016
Reception: Thursday, January 7, 2016 6-8 PM

Swedish artist Lars Korse refers to his style of art as Teorealism, or “God Reality,” because he strives to show “both the visible and the invisible, thus the whole reality.” His paintings are wonderful amalgams of folk art and cubism, with occasional traces of influence from Klimt and Kandinsky. Working mainly from a yellow, brown, and gray palette, Korse shows a remarkable understanding of color, using the occasional dynamic slash of red or burst of green to enliven his scenes.

Inspired by a diverse range of sources from wildlife to biblical prophets, Korse alternates between abstraction and figurative work, much as he transitions between gouache and oil paint. When he was a teenager, Korse found himself drawn to the work of Vincent van Gogh, and to Still Life: Vase with Twelve Sunflowers in particular. Predictably, it was the colors that attracted him. Ultimately, Korse’s ambition for his paintings can be distilled to a single wish: “My hope is that my paintings have a great pervasive force,” he says. “I want my pictures to fill a person with joy.”
