Firmly based in a painterly practice, Audun Lund Alvestad creates installations combining objects, sculptures, paintings and drawings that appear simultaneously as both independent entities and as connected structures. The paintings are figurative, but usually ambiguous and hard to read at first – a way to let the painting itself appear before the figuration. This visual language aims to create a complex feeling rather than a story, inviting the viewer to engage in a close and intimate dialogue with the work.
