Square Beads

04.01 - 21.01

Square Beads – an impossible title at first, unless in this case we are thinking of paintings, collages and hand-coloured etchings. Not only are these selected artworks square, but so is the hanging, as the artworks are presented in distinctive blocks.

In this context, the word pearls refers to artistic pearls, which the artists Nana RH Bastrup, Marius Martinussen and Vilmantas are behind.

Nana RH Bastrup

Nana Rosenørn Holland Bastrup (b.1987). The series (Vienna Color Affairs) was created in 2013, when Nana RH Bastrup was on exchange at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Vienna. Here she worked on a series of collages/drawings where she explored the fields of tension and dynamics between the sexes.

Marius Martinussen

Marius Martinussen (b. 1978). The series CROSSHATCHED was created with inspiration from the American artist Jasper John (b. 1930), who in the 1960s created a visionary series with the same title.
In these paintings, Marius Martinussen has tightened up Jasper John's abstract expression and thus he has achieved an independent artistic expression in a series.


Vilmantas Marcinkevicius (1969). In 2009, Vilmantas produced four impressive four-colour aquatints at the leading gravuer printing house Atelier Larsen in Helsingborg. The edition is only 40 numbered and signed copies of each motif.
