Carefully Colorful Silhoettes


Danish artist: Johnny Madsen. Think blurred human forms in broad brushstrokes, anonymous and ghostly. All of this created from a palette of angry reds and blacks. At first glance it seems a bit subtle, but slowly, the confrontational aspect of his work begins to seep in. Thoughts of, "Why are they shaped that way?" start to run through your head. Purposely miss-shaped, carefully colorful silhouettes...


Currently exhibiting in London at the Mews 42 gallery.
