Things should not always add up.
Morten Skrøder’s aim has been to rid his work of depictions and
associations to other works of art.
This can be seen as a new attempt to rid abstraction from the markers
of abstract painting. If so, it is accidental.
Rather, as in a sequence of Drone music, when a note or chord is played prolonged,
without support of a melody and recurring rhythms, all narrative progression is
overcome. Here Morten Skrøder has found a space equaling what he is painting.
The sounds bring no message outside its presence.
The painting tries to free itself from any relation.
