COPENHAGEN.- The exhibition shows a new theme in Jonas paintings: from digitally composed and strictly drawn lines in earlier works to a more flowing, intuitive style. The works vary from small paper paintings to large room-height canvases, and both individually and in total, the works explore the ability of the two dimensional medium to suggest space and depth. Water colours and flowing transparent colour combinations create a background for sharper geometrical figures and with their either completely flat or very spacious expressions, the paintings challenge the viewers senses and spacial perceptions.
The exhibitions title Zero Point refers to a quantum mechanical physical state which occurs out in deep space. Jonas Hvis Søndergaards works embrace the spiritual, philosophical and scientific questions about the universe and mankinds coming into being. The paintings reflective components are embodied in both the colours and the expressive force of the geometrical forms.
Jonas Hvid Søndergaard graduated from the Royal Danish School of Art, 2005 and from AKI, Academy of Art and Industry, Enchede, Holland 1998. He works with digital compositions, water colours and acrylic on canvas, and expresses himself artistically through contrast-filled abstractions which fluctuate between the aesthetic and the expressive.
Jonas Hvid Søndergaard has participated in a number of group exhibitions e.g. Til Vægs at Charlottenborg, Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks at Den Frie and most recently Skabt af Tiden at the Danish National Museum. His solo exhibitions include amongst others Transit at Randers Museum of Art and Entering/Up at Rohde Contemporary. In August 2013, his works can be seen at a new solo exhibition at the Museum of Art in Himmerland.
