Fredrik Værslev​: “Merman” at Andrew Kreps Gallery

Opening reception: Sat Jan 07, From 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Central to Værslev’s practice is an ambivalent investigation of gesture, ranging from colloquial appropriations to those that find bedfellows in painting’s past. Very often, Værslev conflates these references with the uncertainty of nature, leaving his unstretched paintings outdoors. Undermining Værslev’s own decided marks and moves, the works accrue the accidental traces of weather – like turpentine gone sour, or monochromes corroded into color fields. As they become inextricably tied to the environment in which they were created, abstraction gradually expands into the representation of real objects and phenomena.
