Peter Linde Busk
The artistic universe in Peter Linde Busk’s (b. 1973) works is a dark underworld inhabited by fabulous figures. Distorted, ugly, but at the same time very meticulously ornamented creatures. Busk treats issues from sociology and psycology, universal emotions as pride, fear and defeat, often with a focus on the outsider. In his works he refers to literary and mythical characters such as Hamlet or Don Quixote, but also more popular cultural phenomena such as tv-series like Deadwood and Breaking Bad has been of influence while examining the borderlines between abstraction and figuration. The dichotomy between the uncontrolled expressionistic and the neat patterns and arabesques makes the imagery fascinating ambiguous.
