APRIL 20 – JUNE 25 2018
It may seem as if there are many similarities in the works by Martin Michelis, however, if you look closely, you will notice the individuality of each work. The difference can be the distance between growth rings, the hardness of these spaces, the centering of the tree core and the amount of side shoots.
With his exhibition Martin Michelis displays a variety of different graphical prints that are aesthetic and, in their own special way, tells an appealing story of the nature that surrounds us.
Essentially, all tree sorts are built over the same biological template. By using high pressure as a tool, Martin Toft Michelis tries to document and map the differences that each tree sort and each tree inhabits, and he gives it its very own expression.
Martin Toft Michelis lives and work in Aalborg and is a part of Nordjyllands Kunstnerværksted, where he has his studio on Skydebanevej.
