Angela Gram’s oil paintings are alive with explorations of the natural world injected with distorted, vibrant sensibility. “The Past is Alive,” a show running at Gallery Poulsen in Denmark from Feb. 24 through the end of March, collects a new set of kinetic works. This new collection “The Past is Alive,” a show running at Gallery Poulsen in Denmark through “constant fascination with the monstrously surreal, expressed through her deconstructed animal kingdom.”
“Each work is composed as a collage of deconstructed fragments that reflect the irreconcilable tension between the reality of wild animals and our modern romantic perceptions of nature,” a statement says. “Through their cultural and physical disappearance, animals have come to exist in the contemporary imagination where nature retains its value as a creative force and continues to symbolically narrate the human condition.”
