Magnus Plessen: Riding the Image

Edited by Honey Luard. Text by Katy Siegel.

Known for paintings that oscillate nimbly between abstraction and figuration, Magnus Plessen (born 1967) focuses here on rotation as a means of reordering the relation of the viewer to the painting. These latest works simultaneously feature figurative elements that are ostensibly recognizable--hands, heads, feet--combined with abstract passages that serve to restructure order and dimensionality within the painting. This effect is reinforced by a deliberate illogicality; representational aspects of body parts are fragmented and disembodied, elusive and transitory, unbound by any particular viewpoint or frame of reference. Riding the Image surveys this development in Plessenís art.
