Peter Linde Busk
The Staging Area
"In a comprehensive and versatile body of work populated by tragicomic characters, the Danish painter Peter Linde Busk wants to focus our attention on topics such as humanity, language and narrative, the role and identity of the artist in contemporary society as well as the issue of failed or paradoxical beauty. By means of a broad range of literary, art historical and pop-cultural references we are presented with a diverse cast of characters, which together delineate an artistic practice the style and manner of which is situated somewhere in-between abstraction and figuration."
