UPCOMING / Thomas Pihl - New Paintings - September 8 - October 16, 2016
Thomas Pihl (b. 1964) works in a minimalistic language, and people often refer to Mark Rothko when facing his works. Pihl himself, however, means that his art is closer related to the sphere of advertising and design in means of the contemporary world's desire for aesthetics. Thus, his works are partly conceptual and Thomas himself mentions the candy sculpture by Felix-Gonzales Torres as a stylistic inspiration.
James Turrel´s light sculptures is another source which has been important to Thomas in his production.
