Lars Elling: PalimpsestLars Elling: Palimpsest

Published by Forlaget Press.
Introduction by Joshua Ferris.

“Any painter who realizes the relation between the gesture the hand and brush makes and the imitation of life it leaves on the canvas,” Norwegian painter Lars Elling (born 1966) has said, “will cease to see himself as a figurative painter. ‘Ceci n’est pas une pipe’ and so forth.” Elling’s citation of Magritte is not incidental. In Elling’s large canvases, as in the work of the Belgian Surrealist, human bodies rarely take entirely conventional forms. Rather, their faces and limbs melt into nonfigurative elements--atmosphere, blurred color, scrubbed-out regions of neutral tint--gesturing toward a broader horizon, nodding at persona and narrative while ultimately frustrating any drive toward coherence or story. Palimpsest collects Elling’s paintings from the decade 2000–2010 and includes an essay by acclaimed novelist Joshua Ferris, author of the PEN/Hemingway Award winner and National Book Award finalist Then We Came to the End and The Unnamed.

Published by Press Publishing.
Essay by David Shapiro.

Paintings follows Lars Elling, the young Norwegian artist, through the first 15 years of his career. Many credit his success both in Norway and in New York to the seriousness--the absence of irony--with which he approaches a well-established art form, but the reproductions here make the case that it is also due to the poetic and inviting nature of his paintings. This is art that commits itself to communicating with viewers on a common ground. In an interview here, Elling is uncommonly articulate in explaining both his technique and his way of thinking about his work. With an essay by the noted poet and art critic David Shapiro, who has taught at Columbia, Princeton and Bard, and written texts for monographs on Jasper Johns, Jim Dine and Mondrian.
