Evening Drawings by Dag Erik ElginJuxtapoz // Friday, 16 Dec 2011
This body of paintings by artist Dag Erik Elgin begins with a simple gesture of line drawings done in the domestic space at the end of the day. However these seemingly basic oil on canvas works composed of observation of the everyday rendered by elemental contours focuses not on the appearance of wall socket or a curtain but on the phenomenological conditional experience and the attempt to recreate this experience through a sort of defamiliarization. The paintings as a whole investigate questions of parallels of spatial existences that are variable including movements through studio and apartment in daytime and evening, experiences of abstraction and narration, and of the visible and the invisible.
