Asger Dybvad Larsen (b. 1990, Denmark) works mainly on the physicality of the painting and the transformation of traditional paintings materials. His works are both painterly and highly tactile and are identified most clearly in their dialectical conversation with the medium's traditions and its classical structure. Larsen is in a constant dialogue with art history, especially postwar minimalist and conceptual strategies; in his practice repetition and autonomy are essential and the personal sign of the individual gesture is rejected in favour of an art that tries to achieve a form that does not refer to anything other than itself.Read More
