Edited by Kevin Slide. Text by Martin Bigum, Merete Sanderhoff.
This Danish painter's first monograph finds him borrowing from nineteenth-century Nordic predecessors, inter-war-era Magical Realism and 1960s comic books. Visual quotations from the sacred to the most profane function as eye-catchers, shortcuts to shared cultural memory and elements in unusually complex allegories. He is represented by I-20 Gallery, New York.
