Morten Skrøder LundMaster


Press release

17 paintings

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.
