Working predominantly with acrylics on canvas, the paintings of
Ole Gahms Henriksen
foreground the plasticity of his chosen medium. Emphasizing the materiality of acrylic paint, his methodology could be said to lie somewhere between impasto and sculpture. The ostensive simplicity of his patterns, which often utilize only two colors, or two shapes superimposed one onto the other, lends added weight to every detail, every gestural mark. Often working within a soft, visually appealing pallette, his paintings have the tactile bulk of objects situated in the world.
