BERLIN.- Galerie Michael Janssen is presenting an exhibition with works by Anders Kjellesvik and Monique van Genderen.

Anders Kjellesvik (b. 1980 in Stord, Norway. Lives and works in Berlin.) Kjellesvik is a painter who also works with sculpture, social art and performance. Born on an island in Norway, he has been influenced by boat builders and fishermen and is possessed by a strong wanderlust. His artistic practice is based on travels and expeditions, both self-experienced and imaginary, that create the point of departure and subject matter for his work. Materials and motives collected during journeys are later replaced by painterly visions and create autonomous scenic narratives.

Selected exhibitions: 2013: Center for Contemporary Printmaking, Bergen, Norway (solo); Skulpturbiennale 2013, Vigelandsmuseet, Norway (group); Vestlandsutstillingen 2013, Norway (group). 2012: Galerie Michael Janssen, Berlin (group). 2011: Nordisk Kunstnarsenter, Dale, Norway (solo); Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo, Norway (group); Galerie im Körnerpark, Berlin (group); Malmø Kunstmuseum, Malmø, Sweden (group); Tidens Krav, Oslo, Norway (group). 2010: Giga, Stord, Norway (solo); Håvard Arnhoff Portrait Gallery, Oslo, Norway (solo).

Monique van Genderen (b. 1965 in Vancouver, Canada. Lives and works in Los Angeles.) In her work van Genderen explores elements of narrative, illusion and figuration within abstraction by allowing the surface and material to narrate the picture plane rather than a subject. If her paintings recall Matisse, Emerson Woelffer and Helen Frankenthaler‘s Color Field paintings then she is attracted to combining those elements with concerns of today’s painting.

Selected exhibitions: 2012: Effearte, Milano, Italy (solo). 2011: Kunstverein Heilbronn (solo); ACME Gallery, Los Angeles, CA (group); Galerie Michael Janssen, Berlin (solo); Susanne Vielmetter, Los Angeles. CA (solo). 2010: Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, Switzerland (group). 2008: Galerie Michael Janssen, Berlin (solo). 2006: Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (solo); Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta (solo). 2005: Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus (solo).
