Hvaring, Alf Christian

Printmaking, drawing and painting

About the work:
My work is performed in a figurative storytelling, but includes abstract elements.
The motives are presented through the ability of snapshot aesthetics to capture coincidences and show people in different situations. The pictures are frozen moments from stories we do not know, but are inviting to free interpretation. The people on the pictures are made anonymous. They hide things, lean into abstractions, have obscured faces or have their backs turned towards us. Elements can stand in the way of seeing who they are, where the stories are from, or where they are going. The motives are displayed, but the origin is covered, so the spectators themselves must define the story.
The people appear in context that emphasizes the absurdity of existence and suggests a sentimentality, irony, or humor to everyday questions about our existence.
