Artwork by Magne Furuholmen.
Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers
Best known as the keyboarder and writer of the Norwegian pop band A-ha, Magne Furuholmen (born 1962 in Oslo) has devoted increasing time and effort to his painting in recent years. The poetic, bluish-gray works presented in this book are from a series of prints and monotypes predominantly executed in a single color--Payne's Gray. All of the paintings featured here relate to Past Perfect Future Tense, Furuholmen's first solo album released in September 2004. They represent a kind of personal diary and extended notebook on the CD, and contain textual material found nowhere else. The book's square format was chosen specifically to correspond to the shape of a 12” vinyl album. A selection of images from rehearsals, the album recording session, and the printmaking process is supplemented by photos relating to the paintings, thus rounding out the interesting pictorial narrative.
