Olle Halvars, Slukhålet

Riche Lilla Baren är stolta över att presentera Olle Halvars utställning “Slukhålet”. Olle arbetar med printar i en strikt grafisk tradition som påminner om en gamla träsnitt.

 

In his work Halvars experiments with handmade and self-taught printmaking techniques to create a simple imagery. It is a mix of cut outs, broad brushstrokes and engravings. The themes have a tendency to always deal with a dark and dystopic take on society today mixed with personal thoughts and everyday issues. A sense that contains both humour and fear.

 

Tumble around and around in the pitch-black hole,

Down we’re heading, with no chance of gaining control.

Silhouettes whispering in the dark

Trying to figure a way out.

Everyone gathers in small beehive-groups,

Discussing through post-it notes

How to escape this nightmare.

A mad man erupts the brainstorming screaming:

“Embrace the chaos while you can!”

Everyone ignores the intervening:

Just a person with no attention span.
